With your help, we will provide school meals to children, give cash and food vouchers to families, and repair water sources.
In Kenya and Ethiopia, our partners are ready to respond in some of the worst-affected areas. In Somalia, we plan to work with our ACT Alliance sister agencies to provide support.
In South Sudan, our partners have long been providing life-saving help: distributing seeds, farming tools and fishing gear so families can access nutritious food. We have also provided agricultural training, repaired community water points, built latrines and handed out sanitation and hygiene supplies.
But with your help, we could do so much more. Please give what you can to our East Africa Crisis Appeal
Mary Aluat’s daughter Manut has had no food for two days and she does not stop crying. The four-year-old is highly malnourished and under developed for her age. The family have been struggling to find food for the last three months. They currently eat one meagre meal a day.
Mary’s husband is a fisherman. ‘For the last two weeks, he has been unsuccessful in his fishing,’ she said. The river is almost exhausted of fish.
Mary and her family come from northern Bar el Ghazal, north of South Sudan. The food situation in Bar el Ghazal is classified at an emergency level. This classification means that many households are going for long periods without food, resulting in acute malnutrition and deaths.
