On Saturday April 16, a 7.8 magnitude earthquake struck Ecuador killing hundreds of people, leaving thousands wounded and causing severe damage to infrastructure. Access to safe drinking water and storage, as well as shelter is urgently needed. With your help we can reach the most vulnerable populations with vital assistance.
Malian musician Afel Bocoum who worked with Damon Albarn on Mali Music Unplugged describes the food crisis affecting his country and the wider Sahel region of West Africa.
18 million people urgently need food and water in West Africa's drought-struck Sahel region including Mali.
Together we are demanding world leaders act now to provide food and water for the hard months ahead and invest in long-term solutions to ensure this never happens again.
