The fingers of malnourished one-year-old Alassa Galisou are pressed against the lips of his mother Fatou Ousseini at an emergency feeding clinic in the town of Tahoua in northwestern Niger, August 1, 2005. Torrential rain promising a better harvest in Niger threatens to slow aid deliveries to many of the millions of hungry people in desperate need of help before their crops ripen, aid workers said on Monday. One of Niger's worst droughts in living memory destroyed much of last October's crop, leaving an estimated 3.6 million people short of food, including tens of thousands of starving children who could die without urgent assistance.

The worst drought in years has left 3.6 million people short of food in the West African country. Already counted among the poorest of the world's poor, Niger's farmers simply cannot afford to buy what is still on offer. Their children, in ones and twos, are beginning to die, for want of a few cents worth of food. Poverty is killing them.

A mother breastfeeds her two malnourished infants at a catholic mission feeding center in rebel-held Rutshuru, 70kms (50 miles) north of Goma in eastern Congo, November 13, 2008. Malnutrition rates in Rutshuru, which has seen weeks of fighting between government soldiers and dissident Tutsi general Laurent Nkunda's rebels, are almost double emergency thresholds and aid workers are battling insecurity to deliver rations. The latest wave of fighting has worsened a humanitarian disaster that began in the 1990s. REUTERS/Finbarr O'Reilly (DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC OF CONGO)
