East Africa Famine - How You Can Help

The Horn of Africa is experiencing the worst drought in 60 years after seasonal rains have failed for the last two years. Thousands of people are seeking help to escape this "vision of hell". GlobalGiving has over a dozen projects on the ground in Kenya and Somila providing much needed relief. Together, we're changing the face of famine one person at a time

Provide Lifesaving Relief to Drought Victims
A severe drought in East Africa has inflicted wide scale crop failures and food insecurity throughout communities already struggling to survive, affecting more than 10 million people. Thousands of refugees, the majority from Somalia, are fleeing into neighboring Kenya and Ethiopia - at some camps a reported 40 percent of new arrivals are acutely malnourished. Your support can help us bring lifesaving relief and supplies to those suffering from the worst drought in decades. project reportread updates from the field
