You can help those hardest hit by this crisis.
22 million people are at risk of starvation in the drought-ravaged Horn of Africa. Years of insufficient rainfall have caused the worst drought in 40 years and conditions akin to famine in the hardest-hit areas.
In Somalia seven million people are likely to face food insecurity. The latest reports out of Somalia are that two areas of Somalia are likely to enter a state of famine later this year as the country battles an unrelenting drought and flare-ups of conflict. “Famine is at the door and today we are receiving a final warning,” Martin Griffiths, the UN’s under secretary general for humanitarian affairs.
