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.]

[Niger's severe food crisis could have been prevented if the United Nations had a reserve fund to jump-start humanitarian aid while appeals for money were considered, a senior U.N. official said on July 19. Some 3.6 million people are in need of food, among them 800,000 malnourished children. About 150,000 may die unless food arrives quickly in the impoverished West African nation of 13 million.] Picture taken July 1, 2005.

- PHOTO TAKEN 01JUL05 - A woman holds her infant, whose face is swollen from malnourishment, at an emergency feeding center in the town of Guidan Roumdji in southern Niger July 1, 2005. [The United Nations said on July 12, 2005 it needed to provide emergency food aid in Niger for almost three times as many people as initially estimated, partly because donors had been slow to react to the crisis. Starving children are dying every day in aid-agency feeding centres in the arid West African nation, where the worst drought in years has aggravated chronic food shortages and left some 3.6 million people, roughly a quarter of the population, hungry.

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.
