My today’s outfit is dedicated to the ‘[British Red Cross]’: http://www.redcross.org.uk/foodcrisis/?approachcode=68764_heroEAfrFood. Red Cross is currently helping people in developing countries to survive from disasters that lead in malnutrition and consequently death.
In Africa, famine, drought and conflict have left millions of people needing food, water and healthcare.
The UN says that in the last few months, tens of thousands of Somalis have died of causes related to malnutrition. Most of them were children. Moreover poor rainfall in the region (which includes Somalia, Kenya, Djibouti, Ethiopia and Uganda) has led to the driest period in 60 years for some areas, leading to crop failures and deaths of livestock. Weather and food production forecasts for the coming months are still uncertain and indicate that the worse is yet to come before we see improvement.
The Red Cross is one of the few organisations reaching famine-stricken communities in Somalia with food. In Kenya, they are feeding malnourished children and pregnant and lactating women. They are improving communities’ access to safe drinking water and providing nutritional support and healthcare to malnourished women and children.
Please people vote for me to help them provide life-saving food, water and emergency healthcare to families in desperate need. Chictopia donates $1000 to the winning charity and with this post I donate $1 to the winning charity!
Thank you in advance ?
