The Horn of Africa is currently in the grip of a crisis threatening the lives of millions of people across the region. The seven countries in the Horn - Eritrea, Djibouti, Ethiopia, Somalia, Kenya, Uganda and Sudan - have a combined population of 160 million people, almost half of whom live in areas which suffer from chronic food shortages.
Trócaire has launched a targeted emergency response that will commit some €750,000 to the emerging food crisis in the Horn of Africa: Somalia, Kenya, Ethiopia and Djibouti.
According to the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organisation (UNFAO) an estimated 11 million people in the region are on the brink of starvation following severe drought, crop failure and the loss of livestock, which has been triggered by poor rainy seasons in the effected countries over the past year.
Last year in Somalia the rainfall was less than 20 per cent of the annual average.
