The East African Famine

07 March, 2014 Africa, Emergency Response
Millions of people are running out of food and water

A lesser known crisis that has raged for the last three years has nearly reached its boiling point: The East African Famine.

Three years of drought conditions have devastated crops and livestock in the East African region, resulting in rising food prices and families without the ability to feed themselves. As a result, nearly 13 million people in Somalia, Kenya, South Sudan and Ethiopia are at risk of starvation with an approximate 600,000 children under five who will soon suffer from extreme malnutrition.

This crisis calls for immediate action: Join us as we raise funds to provide water and emergency relief to those in need.
