East Africa is facing one of the worst droughts in history with millions desperately in need of life-saving assistance

23 million people are in humanitarian crisis across East Africa, desperately in need of food, clean water, sanitation, medical treatment and shelter.

Extreme weather patterns have wreaked havoc across East Africa. High temperatures have resulted in widespread drought across some parts of the continent, whilst others have witnessed torrential rains and floods, water-logging the soil and washing away bridges. Much of the land has been rendered agriculturally infertile and no longer suitable for crop production.

Poor rain and harvests, combined with civil conflict, have caused millions of people to flee their homes in search of food and safety. Now a vast You can help in this crisis by donating to the UK Islamic Mission East Africa Crisis Appeal. Every penny makes a difference and helps save lives.

More than 36 million people face hunger across southern and eastern Africa.
-The Guardian

Nearly 3.5 million Somalis have been forced to abandon their homes

In Somalia, drought and civil violence have caused 2.6 million people to flee their homes seeking safety in other parts of Somalia. Another 800,000 people are living as refugees in neighbouring countries, whether it be in camps or makeshift houses. Women and children are the biggest victims of this crisis and the most vulnerable to exploitation. As one of the leading charity organisations helping Somalia, we are at the forefront of providing life-saving assistance.

Over 6.3 million people in Somalia require humanitarian assistance 

This includes 2.5 million Somali children in desperate need of food and medical aid. This year has seen 70% lower rainfall in Somalia which has increased crop prices and scarcity, further adding to the famine and starvation. Our Somali charity appeal aims to help the most vulnerable and desperate, providing them with the nutrition they need to survive and get back on their feet. 

The donations you make today really do make a difference.

Millions are at Risk of Starvation

Over 2 million Somalis are at risk of starvation if they don’t get immediate emergency aid. The UKIM Somalia crisis appeal today is driven by the knowledge that every food pack we give out is making an impact and saving lives. Our generous donors are fundamental in this mission, allowing our East Africa famine appeal to bring hope and life where it's needed most.
