In 2011 over 11 million people in the Horn of Africa were hit by the worst famine in 60 years. In response SOS Children’s Villages set up emergency relief programmes in Somalia, Kenya and Ethiopia.
SOS Children's Villages' relief work in the drought areas of Somalia, Ethiopia and Kenya is running at full throttle. Nevertheless, the worst is yet to come for East Africans suffering from the famine. For hundreds of thousands of children, it is a matter of life and death.
