Donate to the Food Crisis in Africa
In the event that all our emergency response work in the region becomes fully-funded, your donation will be spent wherever the need is greatest.
Why we need your help in Africa
A parent's struggle
Daniel, a father from Kenya is struggling to buy food to feed his family. He recently received a delivery of food from Plan International:
Plan International Kenya has been providing humanitarian assistance to affected communities in Kilifi County. Most families can only afford one meal a day since drought took hold of the country following low rainfall for two consecutive years.
Your gift could provide:
- Life-saving food packages containing maize and pulses to the most vulnerable and affected children and families.
- Support to Therapeutic Feeding Centres in high-risk areas, to screen and treat children and their families for symptoms of malnutrition.
- Nutritious lunches for children, to reduce school dropout, especially for girls, among drought affected schools.
- Improved access to safe water and better hygiene and sanitation practice to reduce diseases such as diarrhoea.
Update for child sponsors
If you sponsor in any of the countries affected, we appreciate that you will be concerned for news of your sponsored child and their family. We have not received reports on individual sponsored children, however, please rest assured that we are receiving regular updates about the crisis. Should we receive any specific information relating to your sponsored child we will inform you personally.
