A deadly combination of drought, on-going conflict and escalating food prices has placed over 13.3 million people in need of life-saving aid across Kenya, Somalia, Ethiopia and Djibouti – an area known as the Horn of Africa. Over 2.5 million children under five are acutely malnourished and wasting away.
This is the most severe humanitarian crisis in the world today. It is more than a food crisis – it is a crisis for child survival.
The UN has declared a famine in six regions in Southern Somalia, officially indicating that malnutrition and child mortality rates are at emergency levels. In these famine zones, 750,000 people at risk of dying in the coming months – more than twice the number in July. There are concerns that the famine will spread across Southern Somalia in weeks.
