Famine threat still crit­i­cal

Cape Argus - - WORLD -

UN EMER­GENCY re­lief co-or­di­na­tor Mark Low­cock is set to ad­dress the Gen­eral As­sem­bly in New York next week, urg­ing world lead­ers to main­tain their fi­nan­cial and po­lit­i­cal sup­port for the Lake Chad Basin cri­sis, so that mil­lions of peo­ple fac­ing star­va­tion in north­east Nige­ria are saved.

Low­cock said mil­lions of Nige­ri­ans still faced famine in the north­east.

Their lives would be at risk should the in­ter­na­tional com­mu­nity stop pro­vid­ing sup­port.
