Summary

Civil war, drought, and economic instability have led to a recently declared famine in South Sudan, where nearly 5 million people face extreme food shortages. Severe drought conditions across the region have also led to food crises in Ethiopia, Kenya, Somalia, and Yemen. This fund will provide emergency funding to international and locally driven relief efforts, providing food, medicine, and other essential supplies to address regional food crises.

Challenge

Nearly 50% of the South Sudanese population is in urgent need of medical care, food, agriculture, and nutrition assistance. Due to a combination of drought, economic conditions, and war, millions of families, women, and children do not have access to food and are unable to grow crops due to the present conditions. In addition, the drought has created severe food shortages in Ethiopia, Kenya, and Somalia which are growing increasingly worse.

Solution

All donations to this fund will support recovery and relief efforts in the drought and famine region. Initially, the fund will help immediate needs, such as medical care, food, clean water, agriculture, and transportation. Once initial relief work is complete, this fund will transition to support longer-term recovery efforts run by vetted, local organizations.

Long-Term Impact

Long-Term Impact We believe that organizations that are deeply rooted in local communities are often in the best position to provide long-term support for disaster victims. By funding the relief efforts of local organizations, donations to this fund have the potential to build stronger disaster-response capacity so that these organizations are better equipped to face future disasters. Life Above Poverty will post reports about how funds have been used and will email these reports to donors .
