Donate to the East Africa Crisis

Please take some time out of your day to read about East African crisis and famine which has affected Kenya, Ethiopia, Djibouti and primarily Somalia.

The Associated Press reports, “the United Nations estimates that more than 11 million people in East Africa are affected by the drought, with 3.7 million in Somalia among the worst-hit because of civil war there.”

Foreign Policy Passport highlights the plight of Somali children caught up in the famine.

Here’s an interesting article from The Guardian about how communication needs to improve to predict humanitarian disasters.

Every little bit counts, so please do your part to donate some money to help the relief work. Here’s a list of reputable organizations that are collecting funds:

CARE

The International Red Cross

Oxfam International
