Africa Hunger Crisis - MGR60001

Main image
Given the scale of the Hunger Crisis in Sub-Saharan Africa, the IFRC and its members have agreed to a response at a regional scale, encompassing 23 countries and their respective National Societies. Amongst these 23 National Societies, 14 were prioritized for the first phase of scale-up, given the urgency of the in-country food insecurity situation, as well as the preparations steps conducted by the National Society. The Regional Appeal allows to build one single, efficient operational approach to the crisis, streamline resources, ease coordination among the IFRC network and position it strongly in its commitment to attend to 7.6 million people facing food insecurity. It must be noted that, despite the regional approach, this response is designed by the Host National Society in its country, preserving its leadership role, with the support of Partner National Societies and facilitated by the IFRC Secretariat. Red Cross and Red Crescent teams have increased food assistance and cash support. They are also providing agricultural support (seeds, tools, livestock). We call upon all partners to prioritize this growing hunger crisis. We need urgent and massive action to scale up life-saving assistance to millions of people in dire need of assistance, but also to decisively address the root causes of this crisis through longer term commitments.
