U.K.’s Disasters Emergency Committee Launches Appeal To Fund Humanitarian Assistance To East Africa

The Guardian: ‘Countless lives at stake’ warn NGOs as hunger in East Africa prompts major appeal
“A major appeal is being launched on Wednesday to help more than 16 million people facing hunger in East Africa. The Disasters Emergency Committee is calling for funds to scale up the response to drought in the region and prevent ‘hunger on a massive scale,’ while aid agencies warn that ‘countless lives are at stake.’ … The U.K. government has said it will match-fund the first £5m donated by the public to the DEC appeal. DEC member charities are already working to deliver food, treatment for malnutrition, and clean drinking water…” (Lamble/Quinn, 3/14).
