“I can describe the horrors of what it was like to live under siege…

But to describe how it feels to be hungry?

On day one it is bad, and on day two you start to think, ‘what can I do about this?

‘Beyond that I will not say.”

(Syrian refugee)

Some 113 million people in 53 countries, the majority of them in Africa, faced chronic food shortages last year.

Another 143 million people in 42 countries were found to be living in


“[s]tressed conditions, on the cusp of acute hunger.


The growing problem is reflected in the increasing global spend on humanitarian aid, which rose from $18.4 billion in 2013 to $27.3 billion in 2017.

“humanitarian assistance does not address the root causes of food crises.”
