Summary

Children in East Africa are struggling to survive the ongoing impact of one of the worst droughts the region has ever seen. Across Ethiopia, Kenya and Somalia, children are at risk of acute malnutrition due to the lack of food and water. These situations are growing worse by the day.

Challenge

As East African families migrate in search of food and water, children are falling vulnerable to malnutrition, disease, and limited access to school.

Solution

Thanks to donor support, Save the Children has reached 4,352,747 people and counting. Our efforts have provided a total of 1,617,509 people with water and sanitation services. Our lifesaving health and nutrition services reached 3,496,584 people through screening for malnutrition. And 297,785 severely and moderately malnourished children were admitted to our nutrition centers. But there's still so much more to do.

Long-Term Impact

Continued support will allow Save the Children to reach more of the 12 million people in need of humanitarian assistance. We can continue to work alongside partners, governments and local organizations to support the immediate needs of those families who are slipping into famine. We must continue providing lifesaving assistance while supporting communities to build resilience and help them find new and innovative ways to overcome the recurrent crisis.
