Please support Y Care International's East Africa Emergency Appeal

Y Care International has launched an emergency appeal for communities affected by the worsening food crisis in East Africa.

Over 10 million people are in urgent need of aid and their lives are at risk if food and water do not arrive soon.

Many are supporting the relief efforts of YMCAs in the region, and the work of members of the global alliance ACT International in Ethiopia, Kenya, Somalia and Malawi.

Donations to the appeal will go towards urgent food aid and other relief work. This will help save lives where malnutrition is becoming severe and will help people survive day-to-day.

As well as emergency food distribution, YMCAs in the region are providing a health centre and income generating activities, as well as planning education to give people the skills to cope with drought in the future.
