Millions in the Sahel can’t wait – Speak up now!

This petition had 8,715 supporters

The food crisis in the Sahel region of West Africa is growing worse – leaving more than 18 million people at risk, struggling to find food each day. With the next harvest still months away, we can’t wait any longer to take action and break the hunger cycle.

Governments around the world aren’t doing enough to help – they’re pledged less than half of the funds needed to fight this crisis and a vital pledging conference for donor countries has been postponed. Standing still in the Sahel isn’t working – more and more herding and farming families are going hungry while world governments are dragging their feet.

With your help, we can pressure the US government to lead the efforts for this urgently needed donors conference – can we count on your voice?

Be heard: Urge Secretary Clinton to schedule an emergency aid conference for the Sahel.
