​African Children to Suffer Due to El Nino

Save the Children warns that millions of children will suffer disproportionately from the failed harvests and devastated livelihoods left behind by the El Nino weather phenomenon

Save the Children, a non-governmental organisation, has warned that millions of children will suffer disproportionately from the failed harvests and devastated livelihoods left behind by the El Nino weather phenomenon.

The charity’s East and Southern Africa regional director, David Wright, points out that, “Children face protection risks as families and communities move in search of work, food, water and grazing land for animals.”

The organisation estimates that 26.5 million children could face malnutrition, water shortages and disease in affected African regions.
