Food crisis in Burkina Faso

Caritas is appealing for €600,000 to provide those displaced in Burkina Fas

Emergency appeal for the ‘forgotten’ in Burkina Faso

More than 2.2 million people will go hungry in Burkina Faso in coming months due to conflict and extreme weather conditions if no help is given.

The West African country has become the epicentre for an ongoing regional conflict and almost one million people have been displaced. It is one of the most rapidly evolving displacement crises in the world and hundreds of thousands of people are hungry, thirsty and have no adequate shelter.

 “…without help people are going to suffer terribly. There is limited access to nutritious food for those who are displaced, nor do they have much access to water for drinking or for hygiene.” – Fr Constatin Sere, director of Caritas Burkina Faso

We are asking for your help so we can provide those displaced, as well as families who host the displaced, with food and cash support over four months.
