Humanitarian crisis across East Africa

Across East Africa, millions of families face starvation because of drought, lack of food, and civil war. The UN has described this as the largest humanitarian crisis in more than 70 years.  

The Disasters Emergency Committee, of which CAFOD is a member, has launched the East Africa Crisis Appeal to provide urgent supplies to the 16 million people facing severe hunger in South Sudan, Somalia, Ethiopia and Kenya.  More than 800,000 children under five are severely malnourished.

CAFOD is scaling up our response with our long-term Church partners in these countries, who are already on the frontline doing all that they can, to reach those most in need.

How you can help people in East Africa

CAFOD partners are on the ground working hard to get aid to people in danger of starvation. Please donate today and help provide food and water.
