Urgent Help Needed!

Parts of East Africa (Ethiopia, Rwanda, Uganda) are experiencing the worst drought in over 60 years.  The lack of rain for two consecutive seasons has caused crop failure, forced food prices to rise, resulting in malnourishment and regional conflict.  Many, many people are forced to flee, leaving thousands displaced.

With your donation to Compassion's Drought Relief Fund, Compassion will provide assistance to Compassion Sponsor Children's families and communities.  This may include assistance with rising food prices and supplements to combat malnourishment.
