For over six decades, Save the Children has been a beacon of hope in Africa, tirelessly working to alleviate the suffering of children and families deeply affected by conflict, climate change, and now, the COVID-19 pandemic. The compound effect of these crises has pushed millions towards extreme hunger and malnutrition. In areas like South Sudan and the Sahel, protracted conflicts have severely limited access to food. Meanwhile, East and Southern Africa are grappling with more frequent and intense droughts due to climate change.
Currently, Somalia, Ethiopia, and Kenya are experiencing their third major drought in just ten years, and West Africa faces its most severe food crisis in a decade, leaving 27 million people uncertain about their next meal.
In response to these dire conditions, Save the Children is committed to enhancing healthcare and education access for these vulnerable African children and their families. Our efforts also focus on safeguarding children from the devastating impacts of conflict, including child trafficking, early forced marriage, and child labor.
However, the continuation of our critical work is impossible without your help. Your support can change lives, offering hope and a chance for a brighter future to those who need it most.
