WORLDFOODPROGRAM (WPF) has just gone up this video of 'Amadou and Mariam' they speak of Sahel, and especially of its country 'Mali.' They say of the situation in Mali it is: "very worrying, because there was to coup d'etat." I would say that it is even worrying, because you leave everything and practically anything is not made.
In this video, brief video, is enunciated the serious problems that has Mali with a coup d'etat that has been good to increase the situation of its people. Certainly it is very serious and worrying, because with this blow of this and their dividing one has been good for a massive exodus of people and now there are refugees' fields in Burkina Faso and Niger where meets a great quantity of the malians with great necessity of food. But that this happening with the citizens from Mali and those of other countries of Sahel. The situation this increased by the lack of rains what provokes a bad crop, and it is quantified by 25 less percent regarding the previous year. But the quantity that but it can scandalize it is: 1,7 million people are in risk of suffering hunger. It is requested to the European Community that helps quickly. And to the rest of the world also.
