East Africa Famine Emergency
The UN has officially declared a famine in parts of South Sudan, while humanitarian organisations warn that the same could happen in Somalia in a matter of weeks. In both countries, devastating conflicts coupled with severe drought have destroyed crops, killed livestock and displaced thousands of families.
30% of the population is already suffering from severe malnutrition in parts of Sudan and in Somalia, the UN has warned that 50,000 children are at risk of starving to death. Without drastic action, millions could die.
As part of our Africa on the Edge: Food Crisis campaign, we need your donations to continue providing relief to Somalia and to reach families facing famine in South Sudan
