Catastrophic drought, economic insecurity, crop failures, livestock deaths and ongoing conflict has left almost 25 million people across East Africa on the brink of starvation.
Red Cross is providing food to hungry families, trucking in clean water to villages where people get only one drink a day and offering life-saving healthcare and medicines to people who are suffering.
There is hope: cash grants in Kenya are helping 250,000 people to get regular meals; mobile health clinics are helping children to avoid malnutrition in Somalia; and famine conditions have eased in parts of South Sudan.
It's your donations that helped make this possible. But the situation is still dire for so many and it's important we are able to continue this life-saving work.
When you donate you will be ensuring that we continue to get to hard-to-reach areas cut off by conflict, and border camps where people are seeking refuge from hunger and violence. You'll ensure that we can keep giving food to hungry children, fresh drinking water to villages, manage diseases caused by lack of food and water and providing cash grants to families to help them buy what they need, rebuild local markets and plan for the future.
