This October, by taking on our 10,000 Steps a Day challenge, you will help millions of children and families on the brink of starvation across Ethiopia, Kenya and Somalia.
The global climate crisis means that countries in the Horn of Africa region are experiencing their worst drought in four decades. A fourth consecutive failed rainy season means that some parts of Ethiopia, Kenya and Somalia have had no rainfall since 2019. This severe drought has led to widespread livestock deaths, acute food insecurity and a very real risk of famine in some places.
Concern Worldwide are currently
- Treating tens of thousands of children and adults suffering from severe malnutrition and other illnesses
- Supporting health clinics to deliver nutrition assistance
- Providing emergency cash transfers to affected communities so they can buy nutritious food to feed their families and other essential items
- Providing emergency water to areas most in need and improving access to adequate and safe water
- Repairing broken boreholes and shallow wells
- Vaccinating livestock against diseases in an attempt to keep them alive during the drought
Thanks to the funds you raise in this challenge, we will be able to continue our life saving work.
All funds raised will go to the Horn of Africa, and if we exceed our target, it will go to where the need is greatest.
