During 2012, more than 20 million people in the Sahel region of West Africa suffered from hunger and malnutrition. Drought and erratic rains caused the majority of crops to fail, leaving food storage bins empty and families without food until the next harvest.

Presbyterian World Service & Development responded to the crisis in partnership with CFGB. To date, $10 million has been committed to projects in Niger, Burkina Faso and Mali, reaching over 288,000 people.
