In 2011 the worst drought for 60 years across the Horn of Africa destroyed crops and left people and livestock dead. Across Kenya, Ethiopia, Somalia and Djibouti, millions of people needed immediate assistance. In response, the New Zealand Government provided a package of assistance totalling almost $6 million to the World Food Programme, the International Committee of the Red Cross and four New Zealand non-government organisations. This funding enabled agencies to deliver food, water and integrated assistance programmes to the people most in need.
"There is still time to apply for the government 1:1 subsidy for funds raised for tsunami relief. Anyone who has raised money can apply up till the 14 March. Contact the Council for International Development (CID) if you need any assistance," urged Rae Julian, Executive Director of CID.
