22 million people are at risk of starvation in the Horn of Africa. Tearfund has launched the Horn of Africa Emergency Appeal to help our partners respond.
Years of insufficient rainfall have caused the worst drought in 40 years and conditions akin to famine in the hardest-hit areas.
The UN has warned that without further action, areas of Somalia would enter a state of famine before the end of this year. Pushed to the brink by the unprecedented failure of four consecutive rainy seasons, and already weakened by decades of conflict, Somalia is in crisis – and its children are some of the most vulnerable.
Tearfund’s partners are responding.
Across Somalia, Ethiopia and South Sudan, Tearfund Australia’s long term partners are responding today.
