ONGOING CRISIS — EAST AFRICA FAMINE:
Famine has been declared in parts of East Africa, and other areas are facing a severe hunger emergency. Extreme drought, violent conflict, and scarcity have created a food crisis that is making it nearly impossible for people to get the food they need to survive. Millions of lives are in danger.
Famine has already been declared in South Sudan. Severe drought in parts of East Africa, including Kenya, Ethiopia, and Somalia, has created critical food shortages. The situation will lead to famine if something is not done soon.
More than 20 million people in this region are in need of urgent food assistance.
Nazarene church leaders are working with local churches to provide food for families and individuals who are vulnerable to extreme hunger.
Nazarenes in South Sudan have been greatly affected by the famine. Many have fled to neighboring countries, including Uganda and Ethiopia, to seek food and protection from violence. Others who are still in South Sudan are in urgent need of assistance. Church communities in neighboring countries in East Africa are also being affected by severe hunger and the food crisis.
Local churches are responding. But they need our help. Read More
