Madagascar faces natural disasters each year that affect thousands of people, yet they are rarely covered by international media. Indeed, Madagascar’s serious crises routinely fly under the radar, with few humanitarian NGOs present to respond to people’s needs. Severe poverty is the norm: by percentage of population, more so than any other country on earth. Prolonged drought in the south has led to severe food and water scarcity.
