Celebrity chef throws spotlight on West Africa food crisis

31 July 2012: Join celebrity chef Manu Feildel as he travels with Plan Australia to Niger to see our West Africa food crisis response.

The French chef, who has featured in a number of Australian cooking television shows, wanted to highlight and learn about the food crisis, which has left some 18 million people across West Africa at risk.

Watch the video to see Manu visit a Plan-supported malnutrition centre in Tillabéri, where critically ill babies are admitted with their mothers and supported through the recovery process.

Stop the hunger

Manu's malnutrition centre visit is just part of his journey across Niger. Follow his video reports on a Plan-supported refugee camp and school feeding programme via the Plan Australia Stop the Hunger website.

Plan is providing emergency food aid and support to hundreds of thousands of vulnerable children and adults in some of the worst-hit areas of Niger, Burkina Faso, Mali, Cameroon and Senegal.
