Madagascar Famine Relief Fund

by GlobalGiving
Madagascar Famine Relief Fund


Madagascar is facing one of the world's first climate-caused famines. More than one million people need help right now. The famine follows four years of intense droughts, with conditions worsened as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Hundreds of thousands of people in Southern Madagascar, including infants and children, are malnourished and at risk of death by starvation. Food is extremely scarce as a result of droughts and COVID-19 hardships. Some people have resorted to eating locusts and mud.


All donations to this fund will support famine relief efforts in Madagascar. Initially, funding will help meet immediate needs for food, water, and hygiene products. The fund will also support long-term recovery efforts run primarily by local, vetted organizations in Madagascar.

How Your Donation Will Be Used

  • Provide food, water, and emergency supplies
  • Help families avoid starvation
  • Support nonprofits focused on famine relief in Madagascar

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.
