In East Africa, countries like South Sudan, Somalia, Ethiopia and Kenya are being threatened by a severe food crisis. To date, around 20 million people across these four countries are starving. Unless urgent action is taken, the situation will deteriorate, and the number of deaths and those affected will drastically increase.
The clock is ticking
Tens of millions of people in East Africa are starving and in critical need of humanitarian relief.
We are currently responding to the crisis in the affected countries and have stepped up our relief efforts, but we need your help.
In 2011 over a quarter of a million people in Somalia lost their lives when the world ignored repeated warnings after the failure of rains in the region. We cannot afford to repeat the same mistake; action must be taken now. We need your support. Please act now and save lives.
