Madagascar is in trouble. Locusts, one of the oldest pestilences in history, is threatening the livelihood of 13 million people. By September 2013, 1.5 million hectares covering two-thirds of the country could be infested. Madagascar needs around 40 million dollars to launch an aerial assault on the locusts, but in a country where 80% of the population lives on less than a dollar a day, this may be difficult. With our help, we may be able to prevent an immense food shortage and save countless lives.
