"How grateful we are for the work Africare is doing!
Help provide critical food and humanitarian relief to people in Southern Africa in the countries of Malawi, Zimbabwe and Zambia, facing drought and low food harvests.
The regional food crisis in Southern Africare is worsening significantly. Zambia declared a national emergency in December 2005, underscoring the need for increased donations for an estimated 1.7 million hungry people, while Malawi officials say 5 million people face serious food shortages, as staple maize prices are increasing exponentially.
Tiny and landlocked, Malawi sits south of Tanzania between Mozambique and Zambia in Southern Africa. With chronic food insecurity in Malawi and throughout Southern Africa, many assume that such hardship is somehow endemic in Africa. What, then, can people do when the problems seem structural, prolonged, and uniquely African?
To address the underlying causes of food insecurity in Southern Africa, as well as emergency response, Africare partners with local communities, governments and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) to implement effective, long-term solutions in the region.
