Several countries in East Africa are experiencing drought crisis following a series of poor rainy seasons. The latest estimates indicate 17 million people are in need of food assistance.
Compassion centers in Kenya, Ethiopia, Uganda and Tanzania are not located in the hardest-hit areas of drought, but beneficiaries are increasingly being impacted. Compassion staff are conducting health screenings to check for malnutrition, consulting with caregivers and local leaders, and providing food and medical assistance to affected beneficiaries.
The upcoming rainy season is crucial so please join us in praying for provision for children and families.
Please consider giving a tax-deductible donation.
Your donation will help provide Compassion-assisted children and their families with food and other urgent necessities arising from the drought crisis. You'll also help provide income-security assistance and education for these families, which will lead to long-term, preventive solutions.
If additional money is raised beyond what is needed for this disaster, it will be used to help other Compassion-assisted children and families who become victims of a disaster.
