Message from Holly Blood

"The kindly man will be blessed, for he gives of his sustenance to the poor." Proverbs 22:9

"And whatever you do, in word or in deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him [for the abundance he has given us, because of his love for us]." Colossians 3:17

"What good is it, my brothers, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can that faith save him? If a brother or sister has nothing to wear and has no food for the day, and one of you says to them, 'Go in peace, keep warm, and eat well,' but you do not give them the necessities of the body, what good is it?" James 2:14

Imagine a hungry mother or malnourished child. Now multiply that by 10.7 MILLION people. That's what's happening in the Horn of Africa right now, affecting people in Ethiopia, Somalia and Kenya, and threatening to spread.

The region’s worst drought in 60 years is forcing families to walk for days to find food and water. Herds of livestock, many families’ PRIMARY SOURCE of food and income, have been lost. Farmers are literally watching their crops and livelihoods wither away.

Mercy Corps has dozens of team members on the ground throughout East Africa, rushing immediate assistance to vulnerable families in some of the most remote and worst-affected areas. We're providing truckloads of water, shipments of food and other critical, lifesaving supplies. While helping communities survive the current drought, we’re also sharing ways farmers can protect the fragile environment so their farms will grow more food for the future..

Your donation will speed immediate relief to drought-affected families and provide tools and resources to protect future growing seasons.

Thank you for so generously helping these people. Your kindness is being shared to people just like you across the world.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!
