12 million people are facing a hunger crisis in the Horn of Africa, and they are in desperate need of help. The United Nations declared a famine in parts of southern Somalia, calling for a widespread international response to end the suffering. Long before the United Nations declared a famine crisis there was an existing one for many many years.
Thousands of Somalis have been fleeing the country each week in search of food, water and shelter, many of them walking for days in the sweltering sun toward refugee camps in Kenya and Ethiopia. Nearly half a million children are at risk of dying from malnutrition and disease. You can help to end the crisis. There are ways you can help. Save the Children is feeding underweight children, providing life saving medical treatment, and getting clean water to remote communities in Kenya, Somalia and Ethiopia. With just a small donation you can provide food, shelter clothing, and water for a humans in need. Save a life today.
