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 of: Kenya, Somalia, Ethiopia, South Sudan, Uganda, and Tanzania (UNOCHA). The situation is so dire there are fears it can change from drought to widespread famine within the next few months.
According to UN Humanitarian Chief O'Brien, "The world is facing its largest humanitarian crisis since 1945, and issued an international plea for help to avoid 'a catastrophe'."
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 is appealing to all patrons of humanity to contribute generously towards our 1 Million Dollars target to raise the minimum amount needed for the "African Drought Crisis".

Crop production and livestock numbers have fallen sharply after poor back-to-back rainy seasons with conditions drying as you travel north. In early March of 2017, U.N. aid agencies warned there is only a two-month window to avert a catastrophe in Somalia where the first deaths from hunger have now been reported.
