LONDON, U K (French Tribune) - With the pursuit of providing funding to the famine struck people, the UNICEF has launched a campaign to help people residing in the regions of Northern Africa and Senegal. Through the campaign, the organization would be raising funds.

It is estimated that one million children in the famine stricken area are at the risk of succumbing to death because of malnutrition. Therefore, there is an urgent need to raise funds so that necessary aid could be provided to the people.

In crisis like famine, people are forced to sell off their livestock and withdraw their children from schools. It takes only few minutes for the natural disaster the lives of people. However, it takes years to help people overcome the disastrous event of life.

The new campaign of UNICEF, SahelNOW, is aimed to help the people of Senegal as they are finding it hard to get international aid. The CEO of UNICEF Canada, David Morley was reported as saying, “In Somalia, we knew beforehand that something terrible was brewing but it wasn’t until it hit famine levels that people responded”.

Previously, Canada helped Somalia in overcoming the problems caused by famine and now it is helping Sahel by providing $5-million for emergency nutrition. However, the UNICEF isn’t happy. It wants the private sector of Canada to take part in helping Sahel to overcome the difficulties.

The UNICEF has said that the children of Sahel are facing acute malnutrition. The need of the hour is to open up the doors in support of those who are finding it hard to survive amidst increased climate disaster rates. It is hoped that the plea of UNICEF would be heard by the private sector.
