Over 20 million people across the Horn of Africa - Ethiopia, Kenya, South Sudan and Somalia - do not know where their next meal will come from and children are dying from starvation.
This is the fourth food security crisis to hit Africa in the last six years. The food crisis is caused by severe drought, loss of crop production and death of livestock. Families are finding it impossible to support themselves and are on the brink of starvation.
Famine is threatening communities and conflict has left many of them with little to no infrastructure. Now is the time to act. Will you donate now and give children and families life-saving food they so desperately need?
