Adhel (11 months), South Sudan
Kids facing horrific hunger urgently need your help. In the world's toughest places children are starving because of the compounding impact of poverty, conflict, climate change and COVID-19. Now the crisis in Ukraine is pushing kids in parts of Africa even closer to starvation. Ukraine and Russia produce almost a third of the world’s wheat. Families everywhere rely on it for their daily meals. Especially in places like Somalia, South Sudan and Ethiopia where famine is looming. And supply is running out. Now, more than ever, children's lives are on the line. Donate today.
Baby Adhel, South Sudan
You can provide urgent, emergency food aid to malnourished babies like Adhel in South Sudan. Adhel is a beautiful child with shining brown eyes. Her smile is sweet. But her arms are tiny. Dangerously tiny. Adhel has gone so long without food that she’s at risk of dying from hunger. Her mother, Theresa, has already lost one precious baby to hunger.
"I do not want to think of losing another baby due to hunger.” Theresa says.
