Children are facing starvation

Please help us to save lives this Christmas

Globally, 45 million people are suffering at dangerous levels of hunger. Before COVID-19, 1 million children died every year due to severe acute malnutrition, but this year acute malnutrition will affect at least 13.6 million children.

Our teams are operating in areas of severe need, providing emergency aid as well as long-term support around setting up sustainable food-growing programmes to aid in building resilience and food security into the future.

But we can’t do this alone: we urgently need your help. This Christmas, your gift could make all the difference to children suffering from malnutrition, and give hope for a brighter future, to the most vulnerable.
