Horn of Africa famine – Harvest still months away

Millions of people in the Horn of Africa have struggled to get food for half a year or more. 

Millions of people in the Horn of Africa have struggled to get food for half a year or more.For several growing seasons, lack of rain dried up crop production across the region. Despite humanitarian efforts to bring aid to the people of  Kenya, Somalia and Ethiopia, it has not been enough. Almost 10 million are at risk of starving.

Cargill sent a ship with 10,000 metric tons of rice to Kenya. That’s 50 million cups of rice. It has now reached people like Rachel Gharo, a widow desperate to feed her six children. But more help is needed. The next crops won’t be ready for harvest until July or August.

Most people just can’t wait that long.
