In the African country of Madagascar, due to drought, the crops here have been destroyed, due to which people are on the verge of starvation. Amer Dawoodi, senior director of the United Nations World Food Program, has warned that children's lives are in danger in Malagasy. Children under 5 years of age and below are malnourished and have reached alarming figures.



Amer Dawoodi told the United Nations that he had gone to many such villages. People are forced to eat raw fruits of cactus, wild leaves, and grasshoppers.


Madagascar's southern areas are heavily affected by the drought and are in great danger here. Because they have not seen such situations before in the world.

Madagascar is one of the poorest countries in the world. In Madagascar, whether children or old or women or men, all people wear the same clothes.
