How To Help People Impacted By Drought In Northern Kenya
Description: Northern Kenya is experiencing drought and significantly below average rain falls. 2.6 million people are food insecure, and the area has seen a 5-fold increase in food prices, conflict around watering points, loss of livestock and an increase in malnutrition and infectious diseases. UNICEF has recently conducted a mass screening in Turkana, showing that 55% of children screened were acutely malnourished. The IRC’s mobile health teams are reaching remote populations of northern Kenya and treating cases of malnutrition. IRC mobile health team staff are out in the bush for a week at a time, serving the local communities and sleeping outside due to the extreme temperatures.

Somalia: A Generation At Risk
Description: Falastine, her two younger siblings, and their mother became sick soon after they arrived, two weeks ago, at a camp outside the city of Mogadishu—one of the hundreds of thousands of Somalis displaced from drought-stricken villages. They all started to improve after a visit to a local health center, but just after midnight Falastine took a turn for the worse and began vomiting. Falastine needs more intensive care than the clinic can provide. Her doctor has referred her to the nearby Banadir Hospital, also supported by the IRC. Mohamed, Falastine's father, gently lifts his little girl from the bed and carries her down the hall, his wife just behind him. They pray that they will be able to get their daughter the treatment she needs to survive. Widespread famine caused by conflict and drought has pushed 30 million people to the brink of starvation. The IRC is on the frontlines, rapidly scaling up our emergency response in the hardest hit countries: Somalia, South Sudan, Nigeria, Yemen, Uganda, Ethiopia and Kenya. We need your support today, not tomorrow. An entire generation depends on it.

South Sudan: Voices from the Famine
Description: Conflict and drought have brought millions of people in East Africa to the brink of starvation in what is shaping up to be the largest an most severe humanitarian crisis of our time. A famine was just declared in South Sudan, which is also Africa's largest and fastest growing refugee crisis. Over 2,000 people are fleeing to Uganda each day to escape war and hunger. Famine is the price of inaction. We are now in a fight against the clock to save the lives that have not yet been lost.
