Christian Aid has launched an East African Food Crisis Appeal, to urgently help people affected by drought and displacement in Kenya, Sudan and Ethiopia.

Drought, displacement and rising food prices have left 10 million people across the East and Horn of Africa in urgent need of humanitarian support. Two failed rainy seasons have left some parts of the East and Horn of Africa experiencing their driest conditions for 60 years. Crops have failed and livestock is dying. The level of malnutrition in parts of Ethiopia and Kenya is critical with UN agencies describing the situation as the worst food security crisis in the world today.
Christian Aid is responding in Kenya, Ethiopia and Sudan. Appeal funds will enable partners to provide urgent, life-saving assistance including providing tanks of water to villages experiencing the worst drought conditions, food for families in remote areas and animal feed to protect the livestock that are so crucial for the pastoralists’ survival. And we will be supporting recovery and helping communities become more resilient to future crises.
