Twelve million people are being crushed by a famine made even more fierce by the worst drought in 60 years
Ever use the term “I’m starving to death?” Most of us have and yet most of us have NO IDEA what it means to starve to death.
This is what it looks like!
The suffering is compounded by the constant violence and strife in the region.
The United Nations estimates 30,000 people have died, and many more are at risk.
More than half the children in Somalia are malnourished, and one in three could die.
Money raised will provide food, water, shelter and medicine.
Americans are donating the most to help ease the suffering. The United States has given $580 million in aid this year. Britain comes second, contributing $205 million so far, while Saudi Arabia is the largest Muslim donor with $60 million.
The government of Canada has pledged $72 million in support funding for the region this year, apart from the current fundraising drive.
