18.7 MILLION PEOPLE ARE NOW AT RISK OF STARVATION IN THE HORN OF AFRICA
The Horn of Africa is in the grip of a severe drought. Two successive years of below-average rainfall (caused by one of the worst El Niños in history) have left some parts of Somalia, Ethiopia and Kenya facing their worst drought in decades. South Sudan, meanwhile, is in the grip of conflict, forcing hundreds of thousands to flee across the border to Sudan and sending inflation soaring so that food is now nu-affordable for many and, in one state, famine has been declared.
We ask you to pray for those in desperate need:
6.3 million in Somalia
5.6 million in Ethiopia
1.3 million in Kenya
5.5 million in South Sudan
