Sahel: Further assistance before "reaching the peak"

Given the alarming situation in the Sahel Region, where 12 million people are at risk of hunger, the European Commission has scaled up its humanitarian assistance to €123.5 million. EU Member States, the United States of America, Canada, and Brazil, among other donors, will meet this week in Brussels to find ways to provide better assistance to people in the Sahel countries.
In line with the recommendations of some International Organizations, Kristalina Georgieva, the Humanitarian Aid Commissioner, stated that "by acting now we can save a lot more lives as well as avoiding the additional burdens which come with reacting when the situation is already reaching its peak". Moreover, she stresses her committment to ensuring that the resources mobilised by the international community match the scale of the crisis.
