A desperate and largely unknown humanitarian crisis is deteriorating in the Lake Chad Basin region of West Africa, forcing millions of people to flee their homes and leaving millions more in need of humanitarian assistance. Oxfam is providing life-saving support but help is urgently needed to prevent the crisis turning into a catastrophe.
Around the world every night, one in seven people go to bed hungry – that's almost one billion people. People are hungry not because there isn't enough food produced but because our food system is broken. In fact, 80% of the world's hungry are directly involved in food production.
We can address this hunger if we support small-scale food producers, tackle climate change, and reduce food waste. Check out our latest infographic, produced in partnership with GOOD to learn about some of the ways that the food system can be fixed to improve the quality of life for millions.
