The UN estimate that 11 million people across eastern Africa are in desperate need of food and water. There are reports of people dying of thirst. Christian Aid - amongst other charities - is responding but need your help to avert a region-wide catastrophe.
Christian Aid is working with partners in Kenya, Ethiopia, Somalia, Uganda and Tanzania but more help is urgently needed. If you are in a position to make a donation, please do give generously.
Christian Aid estimates that:
• £20 / €30 will provide water for a family for two months
• £50 / €75 will help provide food for families as well as fodder for their livestock
• £100 / €150 will pay for a tanker to deliver 10,000 litres of water
