Like a wildfire that has been smoldering for months, the crisis in the Horn of Africa is now raging, impacting more than 10 million people and spreading through three countries. The worst drought in 60 years – fueled by skyrocketing food prices (up 117% in some areas), conflict and limited humanitarian access – has brought the region to the brink of famine.
Water is scarce. Acute malnutrition is evident in many children and adults. Animals are dying at a rate 40 to 60 percent above normal in communities that depend entirely on livestock to survive. The hard, cracked ground produces nothing for them to graze.
World Concern has worked in Eastern Kenya and Somalia for many years. We’re responding to this crisis with life saving aid – water, food, emergency supplies and more.
