Millions in Nigeria face hunger amid pandemic and unrest

DW, 27 Oct 2021
A report released this month, the Global Hunger Index, shows the number of undernourished people worldwide has risen for the first time in years. In Nigeria, Africa's largest economy, many children are starving. The northern region is poor, and a violent Islamist insurgency has made many areas so unsafe people cannot farm their land. The pandemic is making the situation even worse. NGOs say more than 10 million people need help.
Mothers and children often bear the brunt of the suffering. DW's correspondent Fred Muvunyi went to Mubi in Adamawa State for this report.
