More than 40 million people across several East African nations, including Ethiopia, Kenya, Somalia, South Sudan, and Sudan, are confronting a hunger crisis. The region has been affected by recurring or expanding conflict and drought, and with economic pressures, communities continue to be displaced, lose livelihoods, and struggle to access food and water. Timely and continued support are vital for these communities' survival and recovery.
All donations to this fund will support hunger relief efforts in East Africa. Initially, the fund will help local, vetted partners address the affected communities' immediate needs, such as access to food, clean water, and basic sanitation. The fund will later transition to focus support on longer-term recovery efforts run by local organizations to address drivers of food insecurity.
How Your Donation Will Be Used
When you donate to GlobalGiving's East Africa Hunger Relief Fund, your donation will be used to:
- Deliver food, water, and critical supplies to families in crisis-affected communities
- Provide medical treatment and psychosocial support
- Support land restoration and alternative food production
- Meet other needs as they emerge
