(02/03/2017) In Africa, a hunger crisis is unfolding of even greater proportions than the one of 2010/2011 in the Horn of Africa. Welthungerhilfe is therefore providing 500,000 euros of emergency aid to help the victims of the drought. The money will be used for emergency assistance measures in Ethiopia, Kenya and Somaliland. These three countries in the Horn of Africa are currently suffering a severe drought that is threatening the lives of more than 11 million people. According to UN figures, more than 20 million people in Africa are dependent on humanitarian assistance for survival.
