Hunger in East Africa
East Africa is currently suffering the worst drought in a generation. This already worrying situation has been further aggravated by four bad rainy seasons in a row, economic crises caused by COVID-19, and conflicts. All this is compounded by the effects of the war in Ukraine, which are threatening food supplies and causing prices to as much as double. Swiss Solidarity is helping.
