                        UNO world food program’s famine early warning system which accurately predicted the 2011 drought in the Horn of Africa again warns that 20 million people across West Africa are still at risk of a food crisis. Things can be worse between August and December.  Dried weather, Lack of rains, poor harvests, lack of food and increased food prices are making situation bad to worse for poor people.  Sahel region of Burkina Faso, Chad, Mali, Mauritania, Niger are most affected. Drought still considers worst in  last sixty years due to lack of rains and water people have lost everything and now migrating to other countries. Somalia and Kenya  are  also worst affected from recent drought and things are going bad to worse every day. Four hundred thousand people have already migrated from Somalia to Kenya and now  living in camps without  any necessities of lives. Due to worst peace situation and continues fighting between government and Alshabab fighters aid agencies are not able to reach and provide and help to drought affected people specially in Somalia. Women and children are worst affected from recent drought and every one child out of five is facing risk of malnutrition and death. Some people walked four hundred kilometers for search of food and water. According to UNO World Food program after worst drought of sixty years world response is still very slow and things are going bad to worse every day due to lack of funds and worst peace situation aid agencies are not able to reach drought affected areas. Modern countries can spend millions of dollar against unseen enemies in different parts of the world  but can’t provide relief to suffering humanity. World modern countries, UNO, G8 are also still sitting silent and doing nothing to bring any relief to dyeing humanity.
