East Africa Hunger Relief Fund

What's Happening and How to Help

We believe that organizations that are deeply rooted in local communities are in the best position to provide long-term support for survivors of natural disasters like these. By funding the relief efforts of local organizations, donations to this fund have the potential to build stronger response capacity so that these organizations are better equipped to face future challenges.

The projects listed below are led by vetted GlobalGiving partners responding to this disaster. You can donate directly to a specific project or to GlobalGiving’s East Africa Hunger Relief Fund and we'll allocate it to where it's needed most. GlobalGiving will post reports about how your donation has been put to use.

East Africa Hunger Relief Fund
Across East Africa, millions of people are facing famine. A severe climate-crisis-induced drought is causing the dire situation, coupled with regional conflict, the prolonged impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, and soaring food prices tied to the war in Ukraine. Your donation to the East Africa Hunger Relief Fund will provide emergency relief, food, water, medicine, and other essential supplies to people in need.
Invest in 10 women entrepreneurs in Northern Kenya
Our Kenyan partner Children Peace Initiative Kenya (CPIK) is seeking $15,000 to help 10 women entrepreneurs from the Pokot and Samburu tribes launch small businesses and trade with each other. This innovative approach will produce incomes for these women, strengthen ties between their communities and show how women can build peace in fragile environments. Josephine (photo), a Samburu businesswoman who trades maize across tribal lines, inspired the startups and will head the Samburu network.
East Africa Food Crisis
The Horn of Africa is facing one of the worst droughts on record with some 14 million people in Ethiopia, Kenya, and Somaliland facing severe hunger and water shortages. ActionAid is working with local partners to provide food relief.
Drought & Looming Famine in East Africa
The worst drought in decades is ravaging East Africa, destroying crops and driving the cost of food out of reach of many. This project will help scale aid efforts to reduce the levels of death and suffering in East Africa.
Help Airlink Airlift Aid - Horn of Africa Drought
17+ M people are facing severe food insecurity following the Horn of Africa's fourth failed rainy season. Ongoing conflicts & other crises make a streamlined supply chain in response to this emergency that much more challenging. Across the region, high transportation cost is a major blocker for the humanitarian community. Airlink is mobilizing airline and freight forwarding partners to provide a reliable and sustainable transportation network to overcome these logistical & financial challenges.
Relief to 10000 flood survivors in South Sudan
The project will provide relief packages including food and non items to 10,000 flood survivors in (Twic East County of Jonglei State and Terekeka county of Central Equatoria State in South Sudan. Communities are not aware of flood control and disaster management methods to retain water that can't be carried out within stream channels or retained in natural pound lakes. The project will inform the flood survivors to create man-mad channels to divert water around their homes and plant

About GlobalGiving’s Disaster Response

When a disaster strikes, recovery efforts led by people who live and work in affected communities are often overlooked and underfunded. GlobalGiving is changing this reality. Since 2004, we've been shifting decision-making power to crises-affected communities through trust-based grantmaking and support.

We make it easy, quick, and safe to support people on the ground who understand needs in their communities better than anyone else.

They were there long before the news cameras arrived, and they’ll be there long after the cameras leave. They know how to make their communities more resilient to future disasters, and they’re already hard at work. GlobalGiving puts donations and grants directly into their hands. Because the status quo—which gives the vast majority of funding to a few large organizations—doesn’t make sense.
