Situation Report: East Africa Locust Swarm

Numerous countries in the eastern part of the African continent are grappling with an increasing number of desert locusts. Swarms are currently affecting Democratic Republic of the Congo, Djibouti, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Somalia, South Sudan, Sudan, Tanzania and Uganda. Some of these countries are grappling with the worst outbreak in over 25 years. Rural areas are particularly at risk given famine conditions in many regions. Lutheran World Relief is assessing the situation, communicating with its partners and staff in affected countries as well as contacts in the governments and other NGOs.
