Help for the Hungry

Horn of Africa

Severe drought in the Horn of Africa is exacerbated by high food prices, conflict, and other debilitating factors. Hunger is widespread in Ethiopia and Kenya, and famine has been declared in parts of Somalia. Thousands of people are on the move seeking relief in IDP and refugee camps.

Your gift of $22.50 can feed a Somali child under the age of 5 a nutritious meal each day for 15 days; $263 can cover the cost to stock and operate a nutritional health and feeding center to rehabilitate malnourished children in Somalia for a single day; and $500 can provide seeds, tools, and fertilizers for 500 local farmers.
