Child hunger crisis

Children in East Africa and beyond are dying from severe hunger. Please give today.

Across the world, multiple hunger crises are unfolding before our eyes.

In South Sudan, Somalia, Yemen, Nigeria, Ethiopia and Kenya, children are dying from hunger. It’s devastating, it’s excruciatingly painful – and it’s happening right now. The causes of the crises are different. But the consequences are the same.

Our teams are on the ground in all these countries, treating children in urgent need:

  • Our Emergency Health Unit is treating children suffering from severe malnutrition.
  • We are providing food aid and cash transfers so parents can feed their children.
  • We are getting clean drinking water to hard-to-reach communities.
  • We are providing technical assistance to governments to support their responses.
