East Africa crisis appeal

I wish to donate:

East Africa is in the grip of a major humanitarian crisis. Severe drought in Ethiopia, Kenya, Somalia and South Sudan has led to massive food insecurity throughout the region.  Across all four countries, 20 million at people are at risk of starvation.

That includes children, like Yasmiin, who at five years old weighed just 12.5kg when she came to our nutrition centre – the same as a healthy one-year-old baby.

Concern is responding in all four countries – we are treating children who are malnourished and providing food and clean water to families.

I wish to donate:

But the scale of this crisis is immense. We need your help to prevent children like Yasmiin from dying of hunger. Please donate today.

Just €50 can provide one family with enough emergency food for one month. Your support today will help us to save lives.
