Famine Appeal

Home » News » Famine Appeal

Protracted civil conflicts, entrenched economic crises, droughts and unpredictable rainfall have led to widespread food insecurity across East Africa and beyond. On 20 February 2017 it was announced that South Sudan had reached tipping point with two counties being declared as officially affected by famine. The Methodist Church in Britain is urging people to respond quickly, generously and collectively to this  catastrophic situation by supporting the appeal being managed by All We Can. Without urgent support, many communities across the region face the threat of famine in 2017.
