16 million people in East Africa are on the brink of death.

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.

Brutal conflict and drought has led to famine, food scarcity and extreme levels of poverty. This has left 800,000 children suffering from severe malnutrition. 16 million in East Africa are on the brink of death and 23 million are in urgent need of food, water and medical treatment.
