UNHCR I Horn of Africa drought Emergency
Countries from the horn of Africa are facing right now the worst drought in over 40 years.
This is severely affecting millions of refugees, internally displaced persons, and their host communities in the region. As of June 2022, over 20 million people were facing acute food insecurity in Djibouti, Ethiopia, Kenya and Somalia alone.
UNHCR is on the ground delivering life-saving shelter, water, sanitation facilities, nutrition, healthcare, cash assistance and protection to people forced to flee. Support is prioritized for the most vulnerable people, including women, girls, children and the elderly.
Yet, funding is critically low while humanitarian needs are growing fast. We need immediate help to make sure that those in dire need are not forgotten.
