The people of East Africa are in urgent need of your help. There are 4 Million Children who are still affected by the famine in East Africa. Although there has been recent rainfall and humanitarian assistance, young children are continuing to die from not only starvation, but also outbreaks of measles, cholera and malaria.
There are nearly one million people living in refugee camps in Kenya and Ethopia. These people are the fortunate few who have survived treacherous walks and have lost numerous family members on the way. The families in refugee camps are unable to go back home since they have lost all their animals and have no means of supporting themselves.
How can you help?
You can organise a fundraising event at your school, university or workplace. Any amount raised can make a difference since a $5 donation can feed a child for a week!
