Emergency Appeal:An estimated 1 million people across East Africa have been affected by severe flooding due to heavy rains causing families to abandon their homes in hopes of seeking higher ground. Already being labeled as ‘the worst flooding in a life time’ by several relief agencies, the danger of another down pour threatens the region.

Helping Hand USA has launched its “East Africa Flood Relief” fund to provide emergency assistance to flood affected families in Somalia, Kenya, Uganda, and Tanzania. Your support will help families receive clean drinking water, medication, nonperishable foods and tarpaulins.

Situation on The Ground: The situation continues to exacerbate as tropical storm Kyarr threatens East Africa with further flooding and high winds. The International Rescue Committee expects 4 to 6 weeks of rain in Somalia, South Sudan and Kenya. Access to victims is extremely limited with submerged roads and bridges preventing the provision of much needed aid.
Countries Affected:Somalia, Kenya, Uganda, and Tanzania.
