Famine Relief Efforts Continue in East Africa
It’s hard for many of us to relate to the fragile situation of famine victims in East Africa. Millions of people in Kenya, South Sudan, Somalia and other countries live with drastic food shortages despite the efforts of Lions Clubs International Foundation (LCIF) and local Lions who continue to provide aid.
Last month, Lions used disaster relief funds from LCIF to provide food to villages in and around Aweil, South Sudan. Many of the families helped are disabled, female or elderly-headed households and people with disabilities.
This famine began six years ago and the number of vulnerable people keeps increasing, so the work of Lions and LCIF continues. Please consider supporting relief efforts in by making a donation LCIF’s disaster fund. Be sure to note “East Africa Famine” to designate your donations for this disaster.
In the words of Liberian peace activist Leyman Gbowee, “I am what I am, because of who we all are.”
