Emergency Appeal: The continent of Africa, with its 1.1 billion people, has a long history of drought, famine, epidemics and civil war. An estimated 30 million people need humanitarian assistance while internal conflict has displaced 9 million within the Ethiopia, Sudan, South Sudan, and Somalia. Poor harvesting, from natural disasters, have left 15 million people in South Sudan, Somalia, Ethiopia and Kenya at risk of food shortages.
