The lives of more than 20 million people—nearly equivalent to the population of Australia—are at risk of famine in four countries, the UN estimates.” What could become an unprecedented humanitarian crisis, has been caused by “a combination of war, drought, and weak governance. In addition, aid workers are hindered by lack of access to conflict areas. Money is certainly needed.… But just as urgent are peace efforts to end the fighting in [South Sudan, Nigeria, Somalia, and Yemen] .… If it acts as one, the global community can help these millions of people.”
