According to the United Nations, the world is facing the largest humanitarian crisis since World War II. More than 20 million people across Yemen, Somalia, South Sudan and northeast Nigeria are facing or are at risk of famine.  Mennonite Central Committee is working in some of these countries to provide emergency food assistance and to increase its response to the crisis.
