Amid the fluctuating situation of COIVD-19, another life-and-death hunger crisis has approached quietly. The food scarcity situation in Africa has worsened this year as a result of the Russian-Ukrainian war, the drought in Africa, and the high price of food. The lives of children and girls are at risk, 26 million aged under 5 years old children and girls are in a state of wasting. The situation is worrying and they urgently need our assistance.
If they do not receive timely assistance, 5 million children and girls will die from malnutrition.
In response to the crisis, Plan International immediately expanded our aid program in 8 countries (including Kenya, Ethiopia, Somalia, South Sudan, Mali, Burkina Faso, Niger and Haiti) through the distribution of emergency aid, food vouchers, food packs, school lunches, livelihood support, etc. to meet the urgent needs of children and their families. In times of crisis, children are always innocent victims. And girls are more likely to be out of school to take care of their families and are particularly vulnerable to child marriage and gender-based violence. We have also strengthened child protection, community education, and epidemic prevention support to reduce the risk of children being harmed and hope that children can grow up healthily.
The hunger crisis is becoming more and more severe, and children's lives are in jeopardy. Please take immediate action and save people’s lives.
Plan International is distributing food aids in the crisis area.
