Have you ever had to face a day without hunger? How about a week or month? Unfortunately for most in Africa this is a common struggle.
Many people in Africa are suffering for days and weeks against the hunger crisis. Poor rainfall and high crop failure has made it difficult for farmers to grow food for their families. Not having sufficient nutrition for young children lead to growth and development delays. Their bodies get weak and their immune systems have a hard time fighting off common illnesses such as malaria and pneumonia.
Africa could use your help to solve hunger, step up and help today!
