Summary: 

As you can imagine, my work as the photo editor for the largest humanitarian organization fighting hunger has sent me all over the world to some incredible, but also challenging, places. I've been on the frontlines of hunger; I've seen communities picking up pieces in the wake of disaster or building resiliency to face the next crisis. After my recent trip to Niger, however, I was so struck by the state of the land and the spirit of the people I met that I wanted to do something I've never done before: tell you about the photos I took. (..) This year, WFP plans to reach 3.8 million people in Niger with food and cash assistance. But we can't do it alone.
