East Africa food crisis:
A catastrophe of this magnitude means that every response matters.

More than 10 million people in East Africa and Yemen are facing starvation and famine: "Without collective and coordinated global efforts, people will simply starve to death. Many more will suffer and die from disease,"said Stephen O'Brien, UN Humanitarian chief.

All We Can and the World Church Relationships Team of the Methodist Church in Britain are urgently calling for individual and local community support to respond to famine in South Sudan and to avert famine and further death in other countries across East Africa and the wider region including Somalia and Yemen.
