“Please show the world, ask for support for us. The world is not aware, we are isolated and struggling here alone.” - Hoden Abdi Iwal

Hoden is a young mother from the Somali Region of Ethiopia. Her family is suffering through the worst drought East Africa has seen in decades.

23 million people across Ethiopia, Kenya, Somalia and South Sudan are facing unimaginable suffering, while the world looks away.

The UN recently said that - 350,000 children could die in Somalia alone, unless urgent action is taken.

But we know that if we act quickly, act decisively, we can prevent famine. We did it in 2017 and we can do it again today.

Please donate what you can, to supply Emergency Food Packages to hungry families with no one else to turn to.

  • Could provide five Emergency Food Packages, that can each feed one person like Hoden, in the midst of this Hunger Crisis.

  • Could provide three Emergency Food Packages, that can each feed four children and enable them to survive this Hunger Crisis.

  • Could provide two Emergency Food Packages, that can each feed a large family, like Hoden’s, and prevent extreme suffering.
