Thank you for your generous donation to GlobalGiving’s East Africa Hunger Relief Fund. Catastrophic levels of hunger persist as violence and the impacts of the climate crisis challenge communities in Somalia, Sudan, South Sudan, Ethiopia, and other East African countries.
Your support of the East Africa Hunger Relief Fund has been critical in meeting the needs of communities facing famine. These include access to safe water and medical services, assistance for people who have lost their livelihoods due to drought, and support for women and children, who are often most at risk of hunger.
Thanks to your generosity, five trusted nonprofit organizations are receiving grants from the fund to expand their programs serving communities across East Africa.
Here is a short description of some of the critical work you’ve supported with your donation:
Your support of GlobalGiving’s East Africa Hunger Relief Fund is powering community-led responses and delivering life-saving aid to communities across East Africa. The need remains enormous. Despite global efforts last year, 22 million people in East Africa were acutely food insecure at the start of 2023. Current drought trends in the Horn of Africa have exceeded the conditions of the 2011 famine in which hundreds of thousands of people died.
As the incredible work of GlobalGiving’s partner community continues, we will share more updates with you about how your donation is making a difference. Until then, we remain immensely grateful for your generosity.

Thank you for your generous donation to GlobalGiving’s East Africa Hunger Relief Fund. The East Africa region is in a race against time, and your donation is making a difference.
Several countries in the region are experiencing the worst drought in 40 years, and in some cases, simultaneously confronting armed conflict and inter-communal violence. Food prices and supply disruptions are making the situation dire for these communities.
Since you donated, the East Africa Hunger Relief Fund has supported four grants to high-impact and community-led nonprofit organizations at the forefront of this crisis. These locally based nonprofit partners have experience and expertise to respond in the region and within their communities.
Here is a short description of some of the critical work you’ve supported:
Your support of the GlobalGiving East Africa Hunger Relief Fund powers community-led responses, and it means these organizations will get critical resources to prevent a catastrophe. Your contribution will truly make a difference. As the situation evolves and our partners’ incredible work continues, we will share another update about how your donation is supporting people in need across the region.

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.
