Hunger is Spreading

The hunger crisis throughout East Africa is growing at an alarming rate.

Right now, approximately 32.9 million people are being affected by this crisis, which has been brought on by a combination of drought, locust swarms, the Covid pandemic, and conflict. Over 10 million children are measuring as “wasted” which means they are measuring too thin for their height.

Over the past decades, we have seen general improvement in the world’s food supply. However, because of the effects of the pandemic on supply chains, mixed with conflict and drought, we are witnessing hunger like we have not seen in over 40 years.

Our food program in Uganda and Ethiopia is currently reaching over 3,000 people each week. We are committed to continuing this crucial aid for the foreseeable future. But we need your help! Please give today to fight the hunger crisis and keep children and families alive and fed.
