Right now, children in East Africa and beyond are facing starvation – millions of lives are in danger.
Famine has been declared in South Sudan, the first to be announced anywhere in the world in six years. Somalia, Nigeria and Yemen are also on the verge of famine, while Kenya and Ethiopia are both critically affected. There simply isn’t enough food to fend off the threat of starvation.
Widespread drought and brutal conflict have caused successive crop failures, leaving families across the region with little food or water. The number of children requiring treatment for hunger is already beyond what the modern humanitarian system has ever had to cope with at one time.
Children in East Africa and beyond urgently need your support. Please donate today.
