A combination of drought and conflict is resulting in a severe food crisis across Africa. The Red Cross Red Crescent Movement is actively responding to support vulnerable communities in many of the most hard to reach areas affected by this crisis.

Government of Canada Match: For every eligible donation made by individual Canadians to the Canadian Red Cross and other registered Canadian charities between March 17 and June 30, 2017, the Government of Canada will contribute an equivalent amount to their own Famine Relief Fund. This fund will support Canadian and international organizations currently hard at work helping those in need in the affected countries and neighbouring regions.

"When man finally learns to control the elements... When the winds will be quiet and the earth cannot be torn apart...When there will be no loneliness... no destitution... no war... When the last hungry man, woman or child is fed... Only then will there be no need for the Red Cross."
Albert Schweitzer - Nobel Peace Prize winner
