Donate to Help the Horn of Africa

You can help UNICEF send urgent aid to children and families impacted by the food crisis in the Horn of Africa by making a donation to UNICEF’s Horn of Africa Emergency Fund.

The Horn of Africa is experiencing a catastrophe. After four consecutive dry seasons in nearly 2 years, combined with continuing impacts of climate change and conflicts around the world, the number of children facing hunger and malnutrition has increased to at least 10 million. Once again, children are paying the highest price.

In the last few months, the number of families without access to safe water has doubled to 10.5 million. In Ethiopia, admissions for treatment of malnutrition have increased by 15% year over year, while in Kenya, 800,000 children under the age of 5 require urgent malnutrition treatment.

UNICEF is committed to supporting every child in need across the region. 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.

Your donation today will support UNICEF’s ongoing programs and response to the escalating food crisis in the Horn of Africa by providing communities with:

  • Treatment for severe acute malnutrition through therapeutic food
  • Access to safe water and sanitation supplies
  • Infant and young child feeding counselling

UNICEF is in the Horn of Africa, focusing on saving and protecting children and families in urgent need. But we need immediate support to continue our response.
