Take Action Today! Help the Children of Ethiopia.
Famine is often hard to comprehend. Families live meal-to-mealâ€”and tragically, children are the most vulnerable. Today, the global food crisis has made the risk of famine in places like Ethiopia all the more real.
The situation in Ethiopia is dire. More than 125,000 children require urgent emergency nutritional therapy, while an additional six million children are at risk of becoming malnourished and require preventative nutritional supplements.
Today is the perfect time to give. Western Union Foundation has pledged to match up to $25,000 in donations to help address this urgent food crisis.
Your donation will help to meet the immediate needs of children and women throughout the areas most affected by the food crisis. We need to act because malnutrition is entirely preventable. A child with severe acute malnutrition faces a serious risk of death but will recover within three to six weeks with proper treatment.
No child should die of malnutrition. No child should die of a preventable cause. In Ethiopia or anywhere else in the world.
Make a donation to the U.S. Fund for UNICEF todayâ€”double the power of your gift.
