The thought of having no food to feed your child seems unimaginable to most Australians.
Yet this is exactly what is happening across West Africa, right now.
You probably haven't seen this on the news or even read about it in our country's major newspapers and according to one of Australia's top bloggers, Eden Riley, that's not good enough.
That's why Eden, a child sponsor for 10 years, is packing her bags and flying to Niger this weekend to speak to some of the mothers affected and to tell their stories through her popular blog
Following today's Digital Parents Conference in Melbourne, Eden isn't alone. Bloggers from around Australia tweeted their support for Eden as she announced her journey.
"@Nappy_daze What a way to finish off @Edenland you are the most earnest and kind-hearted blogger. I can't wait for your journey with @WorldVisionAus"
@1CathyJ - "Bloggers have the power to change the media landscape"
