Children need your help to survive a record-breaking drought.


In some parts of eastern Africa, there hasn’t been a drop of rain in a year and a half. Kenya and Ethiopia are experiencing an unprecedented fourth consecutive season with below-average rainfall, leaving local water sources completely dry and regular meals difficult to come by. About 4 to 5 million people are now in urgent need of humanitarian assistance – many of them children.

The drought is already historic in length and severity, and forecasts predict that it will continue at least through the end of the year. Kids are missing school to search for water and food, and as resources become more and more scarce, children face an increasing risk of hunger, malnutrition and disease. Your support will help us deliver … 

  • Safe drinking water and nutritious food so that children can continue to grow healthy and strong.
  • Emergency feeding programs in schools that ensure kids are getting at least one meal a day while continuing their education.
  • Access to basic hygiene supplies and medical care that can prevent, identify and treat illnesses, including those associated with malnutrition.

Your gift today allows us to deliver lifesaving provisions like these when and where children need it most. Any amount you can give will help, and every dollar can truly be a lifeline for kids facing hunger in Kenya and Ethiopia. Thank you for your generous support!
