The drought and famine situation in the Horn of Africa is becoming critical. Hundreds of thousands of people are making dangerous trips to refugee camps.
More than 10 million people in Ethiopia, Kenya, Somalia and the newly formed Republic of South Sudan are in desperate need of food, water and emergency healthcare. The situation is so overwhelming that many people think there is little we can do for them.
But God has called us to be His hands and feet in the world, and together we can make a difference. The cycle of drought in the Horn of Africa is becoming more frequent, and weather patterns play a large role in it.
While we can’t control the weather, we can do more to help communities in areas that depend on natural rainfall. World Relief Canada and our partners in the Canadian Food Grains Bank and the Integral Alliance have been working to build resiliency so people living in drought-prone areas are better able to cope on their own.
