Sowda, a young mother-of-five, has seen her children cry from hunger during this crisis. Her baby daughter was diagnosed with malnutrition. The family has gone two days at a time without food. She is suffering through the worst drought East Africa has seen in decades.

Please donate what you can, to provide emergency cash transfers. This is the fastest way to provide aid - by supplying families with credit at their local food store or market they can purchase food immediately. It also respects their dignity and honours their agency during this crisis. Parents are given the ability to choose the foods that suit their family best.
