Peace at last?
The Horn of Africa is currently in the grip of a crisis threatening the lives of millions of people across the region. The seven countries in the Horn - Eritrea, Djibouti, Ethiopia, Somalia, Kenya, Uganda and Sudan - have a combined population of 160 million people, almost half of whom live in areas which suffer from chronic food shortages.
Trócaire has repeated its call for urgent intervention by the international community as the food crisis in the Horn of Africa becomes even more alarming, with an estimated 11 million people in the region now in need of food aid.
The Horn of Africa comprises a number of countries on the east coast including Kenya, Somalia, Uganda, Ethiopia and Tanzania. Failed rains in the region have resulted in a severe drought with Kenya and Somalia being the worst affected at present.
