East Africa Crisis Appeal
Twenty million people in Yemen, South Sudan, Somalia and Nigeria And Ethiopia currently face starvation and famine, according to the UN.
The world faces the largest humanitarian crisis since the United Nations was founded in 1945 with more than 20 million people in four countries at risk of starvation and famine, the UN humanitarian chief has said.
Stephen O'Brien told the UN Security Council on Friday that "without collective and coordinated global efforts, people will simply starve to death" and "many more will suffer and die from disease".
O'Brien said the largest humanitarian crisis is in Yemen where two-thirds of the population - 18.8 million people - need aid and more than seven million people are hungry and do not know where their next meal will come from.
In Somalia alone, Stephen O'Brien, the UN humanitarian chief said that more than half the population - 6.2 million people - need humanitarian assistance and protection, while 2.9 million of them need urgent help "to save or sustain their lives".
The World Health Organization says more than 363,000 acutely malnourished children and 70,000 severely malnourished children are in need of urgent, life-saving support in the country.
