Bishop Richard Condie this week announced that the Anglican Board of Mission (ABM) has launched an Emergency Appeal for the people of East Africa where a famine has been officially declared across several countries, including Kenya and South Sudan.
ABM has launched this appeal as the crisis worsens in parts of East Africa due to extreme drought. Our partners, the Episcopal Church of South Sudan & Sudan and the Anglican Church of Kenya are responding to this urgent humanitarian emergency.
More than 3 million people have been forced to flee their homes and nearly 7.5 million people are in need of humanitarian assistance and protection as a result of the ongoing conflict.
ABM is working with several African Partners, and is aiming to raise $100,000 to provide much needed aid to the many starving and displaced people.
According to OCHA, 2.7 million are food insecure; 496,420 are refugees; 357, 300 acutely malnourished children (6-59 months); 2.6 million are in need of WASH interventions.
Help the people of East Africa through your support and prayers.
