East Africa is in crisis. More than 20 million people in four countries are facing starvation and famine. The scale is unprecedented. It is the single largest humanitarian crisis since the United Nations was founded in 1945.
ADRA is providing urgent food aid distribution, school feeding programs and cash transfers to thousands of children, women and men in Kenya, Somalia and South Sudan in response to the drought and famine crisis affecting millions of people in East Africa. Food parcels include rice, beans, maize, oil and salt.
Your help is urgently need to help stop this catastrophe from escalating. Please donate now so that thousands of people can receive food before it’s too late.
Thank you for your generosity and kindness in helping to restore hope during this crisis.
“I have nothing to feed my family,” Gedie, a single mother of 8 children in Kenya, says. Sitting inside her grass hut, she describes the urgency of her situation. Failed rains have caused gardens to wither and livestock to die.
“At times we have to skip meals as there is nothing to cook. My family had to sell two goats at a throwaway price in order to buy food.” ADRA’s food rations have been live-saving. “It is more than a joy that my family has received 30kgs of rice, 10 kgs of beans, 5 litres of cooking oil and a packet of salt (0.5kg) this month and there is hope for the next two months. This food will supplement the little we have and my family may not skip meals for the rest of the month.”
