East Africa Drought 2011

The tragedy in East Africa continue to devastate many more lives. UN figures indicate 640,000 Somali children are acutely malnourished. According to USAID, more than 29,000 Somali children under the age of 5 have died in the past 90 days.  Aid agencies are struggling to meet the many challenges drought affected populations are facing. While we continue to assist vulnerable and displaced children and women, we call on all concerned to get involved and help us save lives.

Supplementary foods, tents for emergency shelters, essential primary health drugs, water purification tablets and sanitation facilities are immediately needed. AHA is accepting in-kind material and financial donations. Please contact our Head Office at for information on how to get involved.

Here are recent figures and needs:
