report Christian Aid

Exactly twelve months since the Disasters and Emergency Committee (DEC) first launched the East Africa Appeal, the UK public have donated a staggering £79m to the afflicted region, which in the last year has funded emergency aid for 2.3m people. Christian Aid alone has raised more than £4.5 million so far.

With some areas experiencing the worst rainfall in 60 years and parts of Somalia affected by famine in 2011, the aid effort has helped save many lives in Kenya, Somalia, Ethiopia and parts of South Sudan.
