East Africa

Parts of East Africa are suffering one of the worst droughts on record in the last 40 years. Life in this arid and semi-arid region is often difficult, but with the last four rainy seasons failing, the situation is becoming more desperate. 

14 million people across the Horn of Africa, including Kenya and Ethiopia, are facing urgent food security needs and potential famine. That could increase to 20 million or more over this year as the forecast for the next rainy season is expected to be less than average.

Our teams in Ethiopia and Kenya are already helping families within these communities by providing emergency food and water supplies and assistance in relocating if necessary. Our longer-term goal is to help communities affected by this disaster invest in more resilient food and water systems, especially considering the difficult environment they live in.

Would you help us provide 500 households with emergency food and water assistance?

Providing a family with an emergency supply of food and water kit can save lives. Food boxes will provide corn/wheat/rice, some protein (such as beans), oil, and salt. With current prices in the region:

  • $50 can feed a family of five for a week
  • $200 can feed a family of five for a month

Thank you for your consideration! Every gift will help feed and save lives.
