More than 350,000 people have fled their homes because of civil unrest in Mali. Too many families have suffered during the long journey to safety, and as a result, children and babies are severely malnourished.

At the same time, rising global food prices and a severe drought across the Sahel have combined to cause food shortages across a huge portion of West Africa.

Funding is the key -- but hungry children don't understand budgets or procurement.They just want something to eat. 

As a supporter of UNHCR's work on GlobalGiving, you have already made an impact, and we are very grateful. But I’m hoping you can find an extra year-end gift to help families who endured life-threatening struggles in Mali. 

Any contribution you make will help. 

Can we count on your compassionate donation now?
