Child Hunger Crisis

Children across the Horn of Africa are dying from severe acute malnutrition. Please give today.

Children across the Horn of Africa are dying from hunger. Please give today.

We are on the cusp of a human catastrophe, but we can pull children back from the brink of starvation if we act now.

A lethal collision of Covid, conflict and climate change is propelling the world into a catastrophic hunger crisis. One of the worst hit areas is the Horn of Africa where, devastated by drought after four consecutive failed rainy seasons, over 18 million people face acute food insecurity. In Somalia, Ethiopia, Kenya and beyond children are dying from hunger. 

We can prevent this catastrophe if we act now.

Save the Children teams are on the ground providing life-saving care to malnourished children: 

  • Treating children suffering from severe malnutrition with urgent health and nutrition services.

  • Providing cash and livelihood support so parents can feed their children.

  • Getting clean drinking water to hard-to-reach communities.

  • Giving technical assistance to governments to support their responses.

Let’s act now to save lives. Donate today.
Save the Children is a proud member of the Emergency Action Alliance.
