Help children in East Africa

Millions of children are facing starvation across East Africa as the food crisis worsens.

Famine has been declared in Unity State, South Sudan. It is the first time in 6 years that a famine has been declared in any part of the world.

Over 20 million people across Somalia, South Sudan, Kenya and Ethiopia are in urgent need of food. In South Sudan alone, over 40% of the country’s population – 4.9 million people – urgently need support.

In South Sudan, the crisis has been exacerbated by conflict and economic collapse, disproportionately affecting children.

Plan International is working in South Sudan, Kenya and Ethiopia to provide urgent food supplies and lifesaving humanitarian support.
