As they face a growing hunger crisis, will you help bring life-saving emergency food to malnourished children, like Nyaguande, across the Horn of Africa?

For years, poor communities in the Horn of Africa have struggled to put food on the table, due to conflict and the devastating impacts of climate change. Now, Covid-19 has caused further food shortages and brought people across Ethiopia, Kenya, Republic of Sudan, Somalia and South Sudan to the brink of a hunger crisis.

Over 34 million people’s lives are now at risk due to rising levels of hunger, including 1.4 million children in South Sudan.

We’re fighting to prevent the situation getting worse, but we need your help to save the lives of more children like Nyaguande. Anything you can afford today would make a huge difference. Please, will you help save children’s lives?

Conflict in South Sudan forced Khamisa, 18, and her family to flee their home to a displacement camp. Now, they are facing extreme hunger. Khamisa’s nine-month-old niece, Nyaguande, became malnourished and was in urgent need of treatment. Thankfully, she was brought to a Concern-supported Health Centre where she was given therapeutic food to help her put on weight and regain strength.

In Ethiopia, Kenya, Republic of Sudan, Somalia and South Sudan, food scarcity is worsening and hunger is becoming more widespread. In the face of a severe and growing hunger crisis, we’re fighting to save lives.
