Key Facts

 East Africa is currently experiencing the worst drought to hit the region in 60 years. Families in South Sudan, Somalia, Kenya, and Ethiopia are currently being pushed to the brink of starvation– leaving them with no place to turn. 

6.9 million children are malnourished and are at risk of death

Without urgent action an entire generation will be permanently physically and mentally impaired.

15 million children are struggling to get enough to eat

 100,000 children will die of hunger this year unless they receive urgent humanitarian aid

25 million do not know where their next meal will come from

Millions of people in East Africa are experiencing chronic hunger and are starving to death

Emergency East Africa Famine Crisis

 A severe drought has left more than twenty five million people across Ethiopia, Somalia, South Sudan, Kenya & Yemen facing food insecurity and six million children acutely malnourished. A further six million people have been displaced in search of water and pasture. This is the first time a famine has been declared in the area since 2010, when hundreds of thousands of people died of starvation. The humanitarian crisis is being exacerbated by the ongoing civil war in South Sudan which is hampering attempts to deliver urgently needed medical and food supplies and forcing refugees into countries already under extreme pressure from food and water shortages.

Recurring East Africa droughts make it difficult for farmers and herders to produce crops and feed livestock. Providing emergency food is only part of the solution. Children also desperately need access to clean water to prevent water-borne diseases such as cholera. Lack of rain, failing crops and a severe water shortage have plunged millions of people into desperate conditions across East Africa. Food prices have rocketed as supplies are increasingly scarce. In Somalia, more than 6 million people, 50% of the population, are in urgent need of food assistance. We’re acting fast to ensure that hungry families and children get the support they need. Save lives today.
