More than 20 million people across several East African nations, including Eritrea, Ethiopia, Kenya, Somalia, South Sudan, and Sudan, are at risk of starvation. The hunger crisis is expected to worsen over the coming months as severe and prolonged drought, the impact of war in Ukraine, and violence and armed conflict continue. An urgent and global response is vital for these communities' survival.
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 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
