This holiday season, we not only want to give thanks, we’d like to give back. Although there are so many worthwhile causes of which to invest in (visit abc home & planet foundation for inspiration), we’re highlighting a deeply time-sensitive and important cause.
Currently, the Horn of Africa is suffering its worst drought in 60 years. The population of roughly 12 million inhabitants in this area – Somalia, Ethiopia, and surrounding – are in serious peril, with widespread famine rampant. Through the abc home & planet foundation, you can donate to directly assist those in need via Mercy Corps. Mercy Corps is an organization that provides urgent relief to families trying to survive critical emergencies around the world. Driven by local needs, they design programs to provide struggling communities with the tools and support they need to transform their own lives.
Mercy Corps is currently on the ground in Ethiopia, Kenya and Somalia, delivering lifesaving aid – food, water, medical care, and other critical assistance – to families struggling in this devastating drought.
