UPDATE: On September 3-5 our second convoy successfully fed another 25,000 people affected by famine in Somalia. We are organizing a third convoy for late September. Please Donate today to save lives.
The people of Somalia are experiencing the worst drought to hit East Africa in 60 years. Massive crop and livestock failures, rapidly diminishing access to drinking water and the chaos associated with internal displacement and civil strife has created "the worst humanitarian crisis on the planet" according to the United Nations.
While the interest of the international media has started to wane, this crisis has not. The United Nations estimates that millions of Somalis are at risk of starvation, with hundreds or thousands of people dying each day.
Refugee camps on the borders of Somalia are filling up at rates unseen in decades. The people arriving are emaciated, having trekked for weeks through the sweltering heat of the African desert. The conditions inside the camps are grim. However the people who arrive at these camps are the lucky ones - they will have access to food, water and medical attention. The people who really need help are still trapped in southern Somalia.
The last famine in Somalia in 1991-1993 resulted in 500,000 deaths. We now face a disaster worse in scale than the earthquake in Haiti or even the 2004 Indian Ocean Tsunami.
Convoy for Hope
The Global Enrichment Foundation, Hope for the Nations, and The African Future delivered the first convoy of emergency food aid on August 4, 2011 in Dhoobley, Somalia, feeding 14,000 Somali's who were walking to the refugee camps in Kenya, giving them sustenance to complete the journey.
Our second Convoy For Hope was an outstanding success - delivering food to 25,000 people in the towns of Balad Hawa and Dolo, Somalia.
We are continuing our efforts to bring more Convoy's For Hope into the famine affected regions of Somalia -but on a much larger scale. With your help, we hope to feed hundreds of thousands of people before the end of the year.
The Global Enrichment Foundation is dedicated to our commitment to bring food into Somalia throughout this emergency.
