Blog: #lastfamine : pour que la famine qui frappe l'Afrique soit la dernière

Des millions de personnes en Afrique sont encore victimes de la faim

Des dizaines de milliers de personnes sont mortes au cours des derniers mois en raison de la famine dans la Corne de l’Afrique, dont plus de la moitié était des enfants. Cette crise alimentaire est loin d’être terminée dans cette région, alors que l’Afrique de l’Ouest traverse à son tour une crise alimentaire. Il est temps de mettre un terme à cette situation, dans l’ensemble de l’Afrique.

Blog: Running the obstacle course of food security…it’s no fun for small-holder farmers!

This morning I looked out of the window with fear… our stunt at the Committee on World Food Security (CFS) was planned for today and heavy rain was forecasted. Luckily it held off!

I quickly reached the site of the stunt with my loyal motorbike loaded like a mule. The team set the scene, inflated the giant world and the farmers get dressed. Journalists and photographers slowly arrived… the paparazzi love stunts here in Italy!
