Across Ethiopia, Kenya, Somalia, and Djibouti, we’re helping thousands of children in the hardest-hit regions—from the 3,000 malnourished children we’re treating in Somalia, to our efforts in Garbatulla, Kenya, where one in five children is now malnourished. We’re racing to reduce the impact of water shortages by constructing wells, drilling boreholes, and installing storage devices to capture future rainfall, in addition to promoting hygiene to prevent the spread of diarrhea, cholera, and other water-borne diseases.

Contexte

Une crise alimentaire frappe aujourd’hui l'Est de l'Afrique et plus particulièrement la Somalie, l'Ethiopie, le Nord du Kenya et Djibouti.

Près de 11 millions de personnes, dont une écrasante majorité de femmes et d'enfants, doivent aujourd'hui affronter la disette, voire la famine. Depuis le 20 juillet, l'état de famine a en effet été déclaré dans cinq régions du sud de la Somalie, avec un risque majeur de voir s'étendre ce fléau aux districts voisins si une opération d'envergure n'est pas organisée de toute urgence.
