Niger, a desert country in Africa, is one of the poorest countries in the world. A quickly-growing population is being confronted by long droughts and food crises time and time again. Approximately 400,000 people are currently going hungry. For several years, the situation has been exacerbated by attacks from the radical Islamist militia Boko Haram, which is currently active on both sides of the border with Nigeria. Some 280,000 refugees have fled from Nigeria to Niger to escape these attacks. Welthungerhilfe has been working in Niger since 2010.
