More than 10 million people in the Hoorn of Africa need urgent humanitarian aid.. Almost 2 million of them are children younger than five years. The current crisis, which is in some parts of the Hoorn the worst in 60 years, a consequence of dryness, conflicts , and strongly increased food prices. The situation is most terrible in Somalia, Ethiopia, Djibouti and Kenya. If we dont help, million children and women become sick or even die.
The refugee camp in the Kenyan Dadaab, which can take care of 350.000 people is full. Each day more than 3,000 Somaliërs cross the border with Ethiopia or Kenya. The Red Cross emphasises that there are additional funds necessary to the needs of populations.
Why cant we help and stop this. We fly to the moon. What if there was oil in the ground??
Whereas we complain over our own wet summer, at present in the Hoorn of Africa each day more than 100 children die And that is the beginning, because an additional half million children will die before the end of the summer.
To help ten million people a large-scale aid action is needed.
