We need to prevent the famine which has gripped South Sudan and the hunger crisis ravaging Somalia and other parts of East Africa from spreading.


Our projects will provide emergency health care, nutrition support and other critical services to families in South Sudan, Somalia and across East Africa. We already have specialist staff on the ground providing vital humanitarian assistance to people in need. Your support will help us save as many lives as possible.
