The United Church of Canada has launched an Extreme Hunger Appeal as the humanitarian crisis in Kenya, Nigeria, Somalia, South Sudan, and Yemen reaches grave levels. Starvation and extreme hunger are rapidly reaching a scale the world has not seen before in most of these countries. Climate change has created a devastating and prolonged drought, resulting in water and food shortages. Ongoing conflict is also contributing to the crisis as many families are forced to flee their homes, farms, and livelihoods.

All donations for this appeal will go to our long-term Mission & Service partners, including ACT Alliance, which is saving lives in the region. Please give now: Click HERE to visit the Extreme Hunger Appeal page on the United Church website; or by cheque to St Andrew’s. Be sure to write: “Emergency Response – Extreme Hunger Appeal” on front of cheques.
