Donate Food to Somalia
Decades-long conflict, drought, and famine has left the people of Somalia facing an unrelenting food crisis. With over 12 million people living in the Horn of Africa at risk of being affected by malnourishment and poor living quality, these people need our help.

Hunger in Somalia
As of 2018, an estimated 5.4 million people in Somalia, many of whom are children, are in need of humanitarian aid, not knowing where their next meal will come from. That number will increase unless humanitarian efforts continue to provide aid to the country. Over 1.2 million children are estimated to be acutely malnourished, which can lead to defects such as stunted growth and other severe health complications.
Due to well below-average rainfalls, successful harvest rates have declined considerably and are now less than 80% of the average, leaving many impoverished crop-dependant families with little to no food. Additionally, this severe drought has halted agricultural work, leaving even more people without an income or any means by which to provide for their families.
