    • Severe food crisis due to the irregular rain & drought.
    • 3.6 million need food aid immediately. (Save the Children UK)
    • 1 in 6 children aged under five will die within a month.(Save the Children UK)
    • 350,000 children face severe malnutrition. (Save the Children UK)
    • 1 in every 5 children die before their 5th birthday. (Save the Children – UK)
    • UWT team is already in Niger to help the needy with food aid.
    • UWT has allocated £100,000 for the operation, but this is insufficient given the extent of the crisis.
    • Zakat donations can be used towards this project.

    UWT is therefore calling upon our valued donors to help us raise an additional £100,000 towards emergency food packs for destitute people of Niger. Recent reports indicate that if food does not reach NOW then many people will face death through starvation during the next 2 months. (Oxfam Report).
