The current situation in Africa is dire. Over 282 million people are facing severe food shortages due to a devastating drought in the region, one of the worst in recent history.
The Current Situation in Africa
The current situation in Africa is dire. Over 282 million people are facing severe food shortages due to a devastating drought in the region, one of the worst in recent history. This has caused an unimaginable level of hunger and malnutrition, especially among children. Livestock have been killed off and livelihoods have been destroyed, forcing millions out of their basic needs being met. We need your help to end this famine.
Africa is facing a humanitarian crisis. Every 48 seconds, someone is dying from hunger in this region, leaving families with no other choice but to take desperate measures to survive. This includes leaving with only the clothes on their back in search of food and water. Women and girls who have no choice but to walk for miles to retrieve water from functioning water points are at an increasing risk of exposure to violence and sexual abuse. The recent Russia-Ukraine conflict has also provided an extreme strain on already dire circumstances, as prices for foodstuffs such as oil and wheat have soared.
Some parts of Africa have been affected more than others putting the lives of the most vulnerable at risk.
Drought Struck 90% of Somalia's Districts
Somalia is amongst the hardest hit by the drought, with almost 90% of the country's districts (66 out of 74) struck and approximately 4.3 million people in desperate need of immediate aid. With no access to food or water, 271,000 people have been forced to abandon their homes in a desperate attempt to reach aid – exposing them to many more terrifying dangers.
Gender-Based Violence & Disease Outbreaks
Gender-based violence, disease outbreaks due to a lack of access to sanitation and hygiene facilities, a lack of adequate shelter, and more, face the hundreds of thousands as they leave home in search of food and water. Your donation can help provide life-saving aid and protection to the millions suffering in Somalia.
Somalia: Millions of People in Dire Need of Food Aid
The region of Somalia is facing the longest sequence of poor rains since 1981, resulting in a devastating period of food and water shortages. ILM has been working in Somalia for 15 years and is now working tirelessly to respond to the current crisis unfolding. With your help, we can provide food, water, and medical support to those in need. Donate today and help us continue our mission to make a difference in the lives of people who are suffering.
Ethiopia: 400,000 Facing Catastrophic Hunger
The people of Ethiopia are facing one of the world’s most extreme hunger crises, with 13.6 million people in dire need of food aid. In Ethiopia, 400,000 people are facing catastrophic hunger due to the continued drought, conflict, and socio-economic disruptions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. Your support can make a real difference in the lives of those in need. Donate now and help us provide essential aid to those in need.
Ethiopia's Growing Drought Crisis
The drought crisis in Ethiopia is growing more and more severe each day, with 69,000 livestock having already died due to lack of access to food and water. This has cut off livelihoods for thousands of people in the Oromia region, with no other sources of food and income. It is essential that we join forces to provide the food and medicine that these people urgently need.
Conflict in the Northern Region
The ongoing conflict in the northern region of Tigray has made it increasingly difficult to deliver aid to communities in need. Blockades prevent essential food and medicine from reaching those who are suffering most, causing hundreds of thousands of people to starve and die. It is crucial that we join forces in order to provide the aid needed to help these people survive.
Hundreds of Thousands in Dire Need of Food and Supplies
Currently, the extent of the food insecurity crisis in some parts of Africa is unclear due to restricted access to the areas, however the situation is dire. Over 5 million people in the area are facing food shortages, while approximately 400,000 are facing catastrophic levels of hunger. Your donation to ILM’s efforts could help provide essential items such as oil, pulses, rice, sugar and salt, to those in the region.
Mobile Health Units Provide Crucial Wellbeing Support
ILM currently operates eight mobile health units which are a crucial source of wellbeing for displaced people in the conflict-affected region of Afar in the north. Your donations will help ILM expand our reach and provide medical assistance and care to those in the south as well.
Kenya's Growing Drought Crisis
The growing drought crisis in Kenya has caused a devastating blow to the many vulnerable people living in the northern, north-eastern, and coastal areas of the country. Millions of people depend largely on agriculture for income, and the drought has caused them to lose their livelihoods and plunge them into dire circumstances. More than 1.4 million cows, sheep, goats, and camels have already died, and food insecurity across the country is the biggest threat to the survival of children, the elderly, women and men.
The Drought Crisis Unfolds
The drought crisis unfolding is unimaginable, with millions of people in need of urgent food aid and humanitarian assistance. Livestock is rapidly declining, forcing many to walk to source pasture, food and water supplies, and the crisis is only getting worse. We need to act now to help prevent further suffering and ensure the survival of those affected.
