In the west African country of Niger a toxic cocktail of rising food prices, drought, and failed crops has combined to put the lives of hundreds of thousands of people in danger. In Niger one in six children don't live to see their fifth birthday.
The goal of Save the Children’s emergency response is to reduce mortality in disadvantaged households in Niger through direct program activities and both national and international advocacy. To achieve this, Save the Children is augmenting current development work in the south of Niger to provide life-saving intervention for 326,000 children and 144,000 adults.
