Drought in East Africa


Millions are facing hunger as drought continues in East Africa

East Africa has been in the grip of the worst drought in living memory. Over 12 million people have no access to food or clean water and are in urgent need of help.

Continued failed rains have worsened the drought in Somalia, Kenya and Ethiopia.  People are struggling to recover from the lasting damage caused by the loss of all their crops and livestock.

Many people, including women and girls, have been forced to flee their homes in search of food and water.

Over 12 million people

Meet Hinda abdilahi Osman is a 20 year old mother, who is one of the many people who have been forced to flee their home. She used to own a herd of 100 goats and sheep. Drought killed them all. Once her livestock died, she had to leave her home. Without livestock, Hinda and her baby are entirely dependent on aid.
