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".

He urged an immediate injection of funds for Yemen, South Sudan, Somalia and northeast Nigeria plus safe and unimpeded access for humanitarian aid "to avert a catastrophe".

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.

East Africa is facing a catastrophe. The extent of suffering that is currently taking place means that millions are facing imminent death. Somalia, Sudan, Kenya and Ethiopia are experiencing the worst humanitarian disaster of recent times. The UN say they've seen nothing like it before.

UN DEFINITION OF FAMINE

  • When more than 30 percent of children under age five suffer from acute malnutrition

  • Mortality rates are two or more deaths per 10,000 people every day
