Hunger Crisis in South Ethiopia
Your gift of just $28 can provide urgently needed emergency food for a family for a full month.
After an unprecedented three years of drought, the situation has become desperate. Millions of people are at the risk of starvation… unless we step in and help.
As we get out of the car, the smell of decay stings the nostrils. Then we see the cause… a whole herd of cattle lie dead on the dusty ground. “It’s like they all just died at the same time,” our local partner says.
The villagers want me to visit a village elder. It’s dark in his hut but it’s quickly apparent that this man is dying. He spoke briefly about his difficult condition as he laid in bed. He was surviving on one bag of Famix (a nutritional supplement) and being cared for by his family.
We see massive pits where villagers have buried their dead cattle. Some families have removed the thatch off their roofs to give to their cows in an effort to keep them alive. But it’s no use.
The vultures don’t sit far away. They know it won’t be long.
You can help! Rush emergency food to hungry children and their families.
By donating today you’ll provide a supplement called Famix to mothers and children—a quick and effective way to provide the necessary calories and nutrients they need to survive.
Additionally, your donation will provide food kits to 13,000 families.
Every month, each person will receive:
- 15 kg of maize
- 5 kg of kidney beans
- 0.5L of vegetable oil
Providing enough calories to keep them alive.
As a Christian organization, we follow Jesus into the toughest places, helping anyone in need. No matter how hopeless the situation may seem, our God is stronger. In partnership with the local church, we’re committed to following him, doing everything we can to see his kingdom come.
On average, $175 feeds one person for 6 months. But with your donation, you can feed an entire family.
Thanks to a generous grant by Foodgrains Bank and the Government of Canada, every dollar you donate will be leveraged 4:1.
Please give today.
Every moment of delay could mean the difference between life and death.
