Child Starvation in Africa
In many African countries facing a Code Red Crisis, hunger is a constant, chronic pain gnawing away at hungry children. We must put an end to starvation in Africa and we can’t do it without you. Right now, children are living on the brink of famine and millions of girls and boys need emergency food assistance to survive. Save the Children has many proven ways to help stop hunger in Africa and beyond.
No Child Should be Hungry in Africa
Don’t let all the potential of Africa’s girls and boys go to waste. Just because they were born into hunger and poverty, doesn’t mean they can’t have a bright future. Together, we can empower African families to fight hunger and end poverty for this generation and beyond. When you donate money to Africa programs that fight hunger, you support our lifesaving work. Thank you for your generous support.
African Countries Facing Code Red Hunger Crisis
Save the Children is working around the clock, doing whatever it takes to reach every last child affected by hunger. Our priority is to reach children under age 5, who are at greatest risk of death due to severe malnutrition and are more susceptible to diseases such as measles, malaria and cholera.
Our teams are working hard screening tens of thousands of children for malnutrition, running feeding programs and treating malnourished children in specialized health centers.
