In the Horn of Africa, over twenty million people are on edge of starvation.
This holiday season our thoughts go once again to them; for them we continue to commit ourselves every day. And today we ask you to join us in this important mission.
Let’s not forget those who are hungry.
In parts of Ethiopia, Kenya and Somalia, five consecutive rainy seasons have now failed.
This means far too dry soil, crop failures and livestock deaths due to lack of pasture and water. And then it's the turn of the people. In areas where the populations rely heavily upon subsistence farming for their livelihood, the lack of rainfall means not enough food to fulfill their own family's alimentary needs.
In the Horn of Africa, famine has begun. A donation can help us save the lives of those who really risk dying of hunger.
For almost 40 years, CISP has operated in Ethiopia, Kenya, and Somalia and we did not stand back and watch. We have provided communities with access to clean water, nutritious food, and therapeutic food for children who are underweight or malnourished. To guarantee a respectable life and a good education, we have backed small enterprises and educational institutions. To provide health and cleanliness, we have constructed hospitals, health centres, and wells.
Join us in this commitment. Let's stand together by the side of the most fragile. Together we can give hope to those who think they have none left.
