Horn of Africa Drought and Famine Relief Fund


Titre : Horn of Africa Drought and Famine Relief Fund

Pays : Somalie

Date : 2020-11-30

The Horn of Africa is experiencing the worst drought in 60 years. UNICEF has confirmed that over 500,000 children are at risk of death, and the UN says that over 10 million people have been affected so far. This fund will provide immediate emergency disaster and long-term relief to the victims of the drought in Ethiopia, Djibouti, Somalia, Kenya, and Uganda.

The Horn of Africa usually sees two rainy seasons per year ; one between March and May, and the other between November and December. The past two rainy seasons have brought significantly less average rainfall, resulting in the perishing of crops, the killing of cattle, and insurmountable rises in food prices across the region.

This project will disburse funds to partner organizations providing emergency relief and rehabilitation to famine victims and drought refugees including International Medical Corps, Hot Sun Foundation, Lifeline Energy, Mercy Corps, Edesia, ActionAid International, and Save the Children.

Major disasters typically require a significant amount of international support to provide relief and long term recovery efforts. In this case, these funds will complement the amounts being raised by governments worldwide in order to provide the most comprehensive response to the escalating disaster.
