East Africa Crisis Appeal

Right now, millions of children are facing desperate hunger, disease and lack of clean water in various regions of East Africa. Without food and clean water, children’s lives are in extreme danger.
We urgently need your help.

East Africa Crisis Appeal

As you may have seen on the news, there is a major hunger crisis across large parts of East Africa.

A severe drought in parts of Somalia, Kenya and Ethiopia - together with internal conflict in some of these countries, including South Sudan - have left millions facing extreme hunger. Hundreds of thousands are literally on the brink of starvation. Children are the most vulnerable, with a high risk of malnutrition due to inadequate food and water.

Your support is desperately needed to get urgent life-saving supplies to the most vulnerable children, including water, food and basic medical supplies.

World Vision is a DEC member and is fundraising as part of the DEC East Africa Crisis Appeal.

Please give now to provide emergency food and water to children most in need.

  • £35 could buy lifesaving medical care for a malnourished child
  • £51 could go to providing water filters to schools
  • £80 could feed a family with rice, beans and cooking oil for 30 days



World Vision's response to this crisis is continually expanding and we will use your donation to help children and families in the East Africa region.
