Drought. Food Shortages. Conflict. These are deadly forces that children throughout East Africa are facing.

Areas in South Sudan and Somalia are on the brink of catastrophe. Kenya and Ethiopia face severe drought. Tens of thousands of children could starve to death because of food and water shortages.

But this crisis isn't hitting the news as it should. 25.5 million people, our brothers and sisters, are at risk of starvation. This hunger crisis is likely to be the most devastating since we were kids and witnessed Ethiopia's famine, the one that inspired "We Are the World", and Bono's first trip to Africa with World Vision. We were on the front lines then, and it was a World Vision plane that carried reporters who broke the story of a "biblical famine" to the world.

We still have boots on the ground in East Africa to bring life-saving hope in Jesus' name. But we need your church's help.

Your church's gift to the East Africa Hunger Crisis will save precious lives and help prevent famine. And because of grant funds, your gift will have 7X the impact to provide emergency food, clean water, access to life-saving medical care, and more to children and families fighting for their lives.

At World Vision, stewardship is an integral part of everything we do. In rare cases where donations exceed what is needed, or where local conditions prevent program implementation, World Vision will redirect funds to similar activities to help children and families in need.
The multiplying effect from grants and donated goods may change throughout the year on identical or similar offers due to variations in the start and end dates of donor grants and our programs.
