In the summer of 2012, a food crisis struck West Africa in a region called the Sahel. Salt + Light Television's Kris Dmytrenko
travelled to Niger to learn about the crisis. Why was it happening? What were Nigeriens doing about it? And how was the world trying to help? Dmytrenko witnessed the efforts of Caritas Niger
, a Catholic development organization endorsed by the local bishops. Their projects were supported by the Canadian Catholic Organization for Development and Peace
and the Canadian Foodgrains Bank
