Children in the Horn of Africa need urgent, life-saving support

Help UNICEF send urgent aid to children and families impacted by the crisis in the Horn of Africa by donating to UNICEF’s Horn of Africa Emergency Fund.

The Horn of Africa is in crisis. After five consecutive dry seasons in nearly three years, more than 1.9 million children are experiencing severe malnutrition. Children are paying the highest price.

The drought has caused children and families to leave their homes in search of food and water. Ongoing outbreaks of cholera, measles and other diseases have worsened because of the extreme weather.

Your donation today will support UNICEF’s nutrition programs and response to the crisis in the Horn of Africa:


Will help nourish 32 children with life-saving Plumpy’Nut®


Will help nourish 85 children with life-saving Plumpy’Nut®


Will help nourish 141 children with life-saving Plumpy’Nut®

UNICEF is in the Horn of Africa, providing urgent, life-saving aid to children and families. But we need immediate support to continue our response.

From providing life-saving nutrition to ensuring access to safe water and health services, UNICEF is committed to supporting every child across the region.

With your support, UNICEF can continue helping children and families in the Horn of Africa by providing communities with:

  • Treatment for severe acute malnutrition through therapeutic food;
  • Access to safe water and sanitation supplies;
  • Counselling on Infant and young child feeding;
  • Access to education;
  • Essential healthcare services;
  • Access to mental health and psychosocial support services.

Ready-to-use therapeutic food (RUTF) like Plumpy’Nut can be the difference between life and death for malnourished children. This life-saving peanut-based therapeutic food can help a child gain up to two pounds per week. UNICEF is the largest provider of RUTF globally.

Give today to provide emergency assistance to children and families affected by the crisis in the Horn of Africa. All donations are eligible for a tax credit as a charitable gift. If you prefer to give by phone, call 1-877-955-3111. We are available to answer your call 24/7.
