African Drought Crisis
Assalaamu Alaykum WaRahmatullahi WaBarakatahu,
Recognized as the worst regional drought in over 60 years, a lack of clean water has spread throughout Africa, drastically affecting Somalia, Kenya and Ethiopia.
In these areas, 1 in 6 children under the age of 5 are dying because of famine related diseases – UNICEF. These countries are experiencing many problems because of the lack of water, as caused by a lack of proper rainfall over the past three seasons.
HHRD immediately began distributing food packages to affected areas and communities. Emergency aid is planned, which includes providing basic sanitation to these areas and providing shelter for Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs).
Thousands of lives are lost daily because of this tragedy. Help is only a click away, at: www.hhrd.org
