Failed crops, dead and dying livestock, and escalating food prices threaten people in Kenya, Somalia, and Ethiopia. One of them was 7-year-old Kasim. His mother did her best to provide two meals a day. But as food and supplies dwindled, it dropped to only one meal a day ... maybe. Her tears could not stop stomach cramps from ravaging her precious son.
Drought in the Horn of Africa has decimated crops.
Children like Kasim are suffering and need your help.
While leaving for the market one day, Kasim's mother hesitated — silently hoping Kasim would still be alive when she returned. He hung on, and the family benefited from a partnership* that provided emergency food assistance.
Kasim is 8 now, but the crisis in the Horn of Africa is not over. About 900,000 children already are in acute malnutrition. Without help, they face:
- Their parents' loss of livelihood
- Long-term stunting and cognitive effects of malnutrition
