All We Can and the World Church Relationships Team of the Methodist Church in Britain are calling for support for this urgent appeal to respond to help avert famine in countries on the verge of disaster.

Your donation will help our partners to respond quickly to those in greatest need.

Protracted civil conflicts, entrenched economic crises, droughts and unpredictable rainfall have led to widespread food insecurity across East Africa and neighbouring countries* such as Yemen. On 20 February 2017 it was announced that South Sudan had reached tipping point with two counties being declared as officially affected by famine.

The Methodist Church in Britain is urging people to respond quickly, generously and collectively to this catastrophic situation by supporting the appeal being managed by All We Can. Without urgent support, many communities across the region face the threat of famine in 2017.

All We Can's Humanitarian Aid Manager Jason Snuggs said:
"This situation is incredibly serious, it is not one we can ignore. We need supporters to give generously and without delay so we can respond to the need in South Sudan and help towards averting famine in other countries on the verge of disaster."

All We Can has already begun working with its international humanitarian aid partners to respond to the immediate urgent needs in South Sudan and Somalia. All We Can will also be responding to the growing crises in Yemen, Burundi and Ethiopia through our trusted local partners and experienced humanitarian aid partners. Malnutrition is widespread, in some countries water is scarce and the need for lifesaving aid; food, water and sanitation, is critical.
Your support can save lives. Please give. Do all you can.
