Impact: Help the Children Affected by Famine

Posted on: 03.26.2017 in interact


The Red Cross recently appealed for for $400 million to help millions of people facing famine or the risk of it in four conflict-ridden countries — Somalia, Yemen, South Sudan and Nigeria. According to the United Nations Children’s Emergency Fund (UNICEF), an entire generation is at stake in South Sudan

“Children are already severely malnourished,” said UNICEF official Jeremy Hopkins. “If we do not reach these children with urgent aid, many of them will die.”

Undernourishment is the leading cause for stunting, or stunted growth. It’s a long-term issue that effects children living in regions experiencing famine, or sometimes just coping with everyday food insecurity.


You can help make an impact. Here are some groups working to provide urgent help in the region — learn how you can support them:
