What you can do

Pray for children and families vulnerable to hunger and malnutrition. Pray that children would receive the nourishment they need to thrive and that aid organizations would be able to assist those who need it the most.

Make a one-time gift to our Horn of Africa Food Crisis Fund. Your donation will multiply five times to help provide emergency food, healthcare, and other critical assistance to this suffering part of the world.

Speak out. Urge our legislators to prioritize the needs of those suffering from hunger.
