Tearfund is helping tens of thousands of people affected by the severe drought in East Africa.
Following the extensive failure of crops and widespread livestock fatalities, our partners have been providing emergency food aid, clean water and income assistance.
Thanks to generous support for our East Africa food crisis appeal and funds from the Disasters Emergency Committee, we've been able to help 130,000 of the most vulnerable people.
Severe hunger is affecting several countries. South east Ethiopia is the hardest hit region, with 4.6 million farming-dependent people experiencing food shortages, while 3.2 million others are affected in northern Kenya and 3.7 million in Somalia.
Tearfund is well-placed to help. We have been working in the region for many years, building the resilience of people to withstand climatic shocks by improving their agricultural skills.
