Tearfund West Africa appeal

Children collecting water, Mailo village, Dosso Province.

The food crisis in West Africa continues to get worse, and this week Tearfund have launched their West Africa appeal. Although a large area of the Sahel region is affected, the focus for the appeal is on Niger, using stories gathered on my recent trip there with Mark Lang.

Tearfund have also put up some of the images on Pinterest here.

There are some additional pages there too – a video shot by Mark, and a slideshow of my images.

Please, if you can, give something – it’ll help. This is the link to do that.
