Urgent appeal

Millions of children are at risk of malnutrition and starvation.

We urgently need you to help these children who fight hunger every day.

Across eastern and southern Africa, millions of children are threatened by famine. For them, each day is a battle for survival.

Musimbi, her young nephew Rayford and the rest of their family survive on two tiny meals a day. Drought destroyed their crops and livelihoods. They’re all at risk of malnutrition and even starvation.

Musimbi feels hungry almost all the time and can’t go to school. Rayford is underweight and needs nutrient-rich foods to grow properly and fight illnesses.
