The drought in the Horn of Africa has placed millions of people at risk of starvation and sparked a worldwide call to action — and CNEWA has responded.

Following a generous outpouring from donors, CNEWA has rushed funds to our team members on the ground, who are working with local church partners to assess and prioritize the needs and expedite the response.

The report below details some of what has been done. Two members of the CNEWA team based in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, visited three summer camps and two health facilities in August 2016 and saw first-hand how local churches, supported by CNEWA’s donors, are helping men, women and children survive this crisis.
