The famine in Somalia has killed 30,000 children in 3 months. In 2011 we have the opportunity to make famine a thing of the past. Lives are in your hands. Please fully fund Feed the Future and help break the cycle of famine for good.
Bono, George Clooney, Jessica Alba, Idris Elba and more unite behind ONE’s new campaign to help focus the world’s attention again on the famine and food crisis in the Horn of Africa.
This summer, a food crisis emerged in the Horn of Africa and now threatens the lives of more than 13 million people. Although we’ve come a long way since the Ethiopian famine of 1984-85, it’s time to make sure this doesn’t happen again – anywhere. In Africa and beyond, the US government is investing in local agriculture, safety nets, risk management, and other programs so that this type of tragedy becomes history. But this fall, Congress threatens to cut foreign assistance programs like Feed the Future that sustainably help people break the cycle of poverty and hunger. This, coupled with increased peace and security can help ensure famine never happens again.
ONE is campaigning to ensure that the Congressional budget does not cut foreign assistance programs that help people break the cycle of poverty and hunger.
