Light a candle and say a prayer for our brothers and sisters affected by the drought in the Horn of Africa.
Hold a Food Fast in solidarity with our brothers and sisters in East Africa who are facing hunger.
While 12 million of our brothers and sisters in East Africa face malnutrition and starvation, some proposals in the U.S. Congress would drastically cut assistance to people in such dire need. Raise your voice to protect life-saving, poverty-focused international assistance that makes up less than 1 percent of the federal budget but effectively fights hunger, disease and makes drought-prone communities more resilient to hunger crises.
CRS and our partners are working around the clock to respond to this unfolding crisis by distributing food, clean water and other emergency supplies. One thing is clear: The situation is dire and lives are at stake. Please give now to the East Africa Emergency Fund.
By becoming a monthly donor you make it possible for CRS to provide projects that benefit the most impoverished and disadvantaged around the world so they are better able to survive emergencies like the current drought.
