THE HORN OF AFRICA CRISIS
In Ethiopia, Kenya and Somalia, the number of people without reliable access to safe water has risen from 9.5 million to 16.2 million in just five months. The drought has caused widespread food insecurity and mass displacement. In Central Sahel, 16 million people will face food insecurity this year due to a multi-layered crisis of armed conflict and climate change. As families are forced to leave their homes, children become more vulnerable to health threats and safety risks.
OUR CALL TO ACTION
UNICEF has teams on the ground across the Horn of Africa and Central Sahel working to support vulnerable children and families in need. Efforts include trucking in safe water, providing sanitation and hygiene support and immunizations to combat disease, and providing services that protect children and women from the risk of violence and abuse. UNICEF's emergency response also includes providing therapeutic foods to treat acute malnutrition and micronutrients to tackle deficiencies.
