A chance to help, whether you are Atheist, Christian, Muslim or anything else

Here is a humanitarian crisis, and anyone can help:

Aid agencies launch Niger appeal

About seven million people – half of the country’s population – face food shortages after crop failures last year.

Aid organisations Oxfam and Save The Children say the situation is growing more critical by the day.

Their concern is shared by the UN, which says the crisis is of a magnitude not seen before.

Save the Children says 400,000 children under five are at risk of starvation.

- Oxfam International – “The name ‘Oxfam’ comes from the Oxford Committee for Famine Relief, founded in Britain in 1942.” (Rating)

- Save the Children – “Our mission is to create lasting, positive change in the lives of children in need in the U.S. and around the world.” (Rating)
