South Africa Offers Humanitarian Aid to Other African Nations

Last week, South Africa announced that it will offer humanitarian aid to the Sahel nations of MaliNigerMauritania and Chad, who are struggling to feed their populations amid drought, conflict and displacement.

 

“South Africa has taken heed of the call made by the four core Sahelian countries because of the humanitarian crisis currently confronting this region. As a short-term measure, emergency food and nutritional aid will be directly delivered to these sister countries as a matter of urgency,” said a statement released by the country’s Department of International Relations and Cooperation.
