​Govt Declares Food Emergency Due to Drought

The international community urged to act swiftly and decisively on the Malawi Government's ‘declaration of emergency’

The international community must act swiftly and decisively on the Malawi Government's ‘declaration of emergency’ where people are facing worsening hunger because of El Nino-related drought and country-wide crop failures.
 
Oxfam, Concern Universal, Concern Worldwide, Save the Children and GOAL say the Government of Malawi's declaration was a much-needed acknowledgement of the scale of the problem and should send a strong signal to donors to act quickly.
 
John Makina, Oxfam in Malawi's country director says: "Yesterday's declaration of emergency recognises the severity of the situation in the country. Ordinary Malawians should not have to go to bed hungry every night. All of us - government, NGOs [non-governmental organisations] and international donors - need to work together to ensure that everyone has access to enough food for themselves and their families."
