Food Crisis in the Sahel

HOM - Food Crisi s in the Sahel

In 2012, House of Mercy Children’s Home, Lagos, Nigeria (HOM) contributed a token and also lent its support to on-going efforts to provide humanitarian assistance to children during the food crisis in the Sahel where 1 million children were exposed to hunger and malnutrition across 8 countries of the Sahel region of West Africa (Burkina Faso, Mali, Mauritania and Niger; the Sahel belt of Chad and the northern regions of Cameroon, Nigeria and Senegal).

Our vision is of a prosperous and peaceful African continent where every child has access to healthy food on a daily and regular basis and is enabled to reach his or her full potential.
