The ongoing drought in East Africa has left close to 12 million people in danger of starvation. These are the faces of the crisis: men, women and children desperately in need of your help. Join LWR in praying for the people of East Africa and learn more about how you can support our response. With God’s help, and your faith in action, we can reach out to ease the suffering in East Africa.
