A major problem in African is the weather. In Africa there is not a lot of rain at all, and all the crops and food become stressed because they don't have enough water. This is a problem because people in Africa won't be able to eat if there crops die. The people of Africa rely on natural resourses such as agriculture and water supply. Temperature's range in Africa. During the summer the average temperature can get close to 98 degrees, not including the humidity. Supply of fresh water is hard as well in villages, in some places water recourses aren't near by which makes it difficult to get water.
