CAFOD has launched a Emergency Food Crisis Appeal for Ethiopia’s Tigray region, South Sudan and North- East Nigeria.
Families across these three countries face extreme hunger because of a deadly combination of Covid, climate change and protracted conflict, creating a humanitarian emergency. We no longer have the ‘luxury’ of dealing with one crisis at a time.
We have committed £500,000 of your generous donations. Working together, we need your further support to get food and clean water to hundreds of thousands of people.
A recent report from the United Nations says 155 million people faced acute hunger in 2020 – an increase of 20 million people from 2019 – and that hunger is expected to increase in 23 global hotspots.
The report identifies the situation in Tigray in Ethiopia, South Sudan, and north-east Nigeria as “catastrophic”, with Ethiopia at the top of the list.
Your donation today will allow us to support the emergency response of the Church in Ethiopia – getting food parcels to vulnerable families and nutrition support to pregnant mothers and children under five years of age. It will also allow us to provide essential counselling for those traumatised by the war.
