African Drought Crisis: Millions Are Dying Due to East African Drought

Emergency Appeal:

More than 20 million people face starvation in East Africa, if immediate water, healthcare, shelter, and nutritious food is not provided to the region and the hardest hit countries: Uganda, Kenya, Somalia, and Ethiopia. ( UNOCHA)

With the threat of starvation, malnutrition, water borne diseases and death looming overhead the citizens of these countries are relying on the international community to stand together and send aid. The world can not wait to see hundreds dying due to famine and drought before collectively doing something. HHRD has launched its "African Drought Crisis Fund", and is requesting generous donations towards this cause.

HHRD Goals:

Based on the generosity of our donors some of the objectives HHRD aims to achieve in the region are: to provide relief and nutritional content to disaster affected people, provide clean drinking water to people and livestock, and to assist the government's effort in fighting hunger.

SKILLS DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM:

Men and women of Isiolo, Kenya recently graduated from HHRD's Skills and Development Center with certifications in computer usage and operation, tailoring and driving.

Training in computers, tailoring and driving benefited over 286 individuals at two of our Skills Development Centers in Kenya.
