(World Vision) "The situation is escalating and we aren't even at the peak of the hungry season between harvests yet," said Sarah Carr, a World Vision nutritionist serving in Niger, West Africa.
"Young boys are banging on my door at night begging for food," said Carr. "That's something I've never seen in Africa, even here in Niger where people are so poor."
It seems that drought and swarms of locusts have devestated the region and driven the cost of food out of the reach of the poor. Many officials are estimating that up to 3.6 million people could go hungry, including 800,000 children (who are under five years old).
