Humanitarian Disaster in the Horn of Africa - Help Now
Together, we are stronger.
Life in the Horn of Africa is grim. Every night, 8 million people go hungry. These courageous people need help to feed their families and lift themselves out of poverty.
In Ethiopia, Somalia, and Kenya, Mercy Corps is helping people access clean drinking water, feed their children, grow more food, start small businesses, and create a better future for their families.
In addition to immediate relief, your donation helps rebuild communities, mitigate the risk of future droughts and famine, and combat malnutrition — all in a sustainable way.
Report from the Field
An annual report from Mercy Corps highlights a few of their endeavors in the region, demonstrating how they are making a difference:
At the beginning of the crisis, Mercy Corps focused on securing humanitarian aid for the hardest-hit areas by delivering over 19.6 million liters of water; distributing sanitation and hygiene kits to hundreds of households; providing shelter for nearly 50,000 individuals, and delivering emergency cash vouchers for another 25,000 people. In addition to meeting the most basic needs of people, throughout the region, Mercy Corps' response included significant efforts to move communities from recovery toward rebuilding in a way that would build resilience against future droughts.
