"You have the power to save a life."

War, drought, and displacement are fueling the largest hunger crisis in decades, with more than 20 million people teetering on the edge of famine and starvation. Among them, 1.4 million children at severe risk of death without immediate help. In Yemen alone, a child dies every 10 minutes from preventable causes such as malnutrition and diarrhea.

The unprecedented scale of this crisis requires an immediate and massive response. Today, eight of the world’s largest and most respected U.S.-based international relief organizations, including International Medical Corps, CARE, International Rescue Committee, Mercy Corps, Oxfam, Plan International, Save the Children, and World Vision, are coming together to form a humanitarian alliance to raise awareness and funds to fight hunger.

Famine can be averted, but we have to act now. Your support will make it possible for International Medical Corps and our Global Emergency Response Coalition partners to deliver food, medical care, and other life-saving services to millions of malnourished children and families who do not know where their next meals are coming from.

An emergency of this size requires a truly global response. In 2011, a famine in Somalia claimed the lives of nearly 260,000 people. More than half of them were children. We cannot let history repeat itself. No child should die because they don’t have enough to eat. Please act now and make a donation to the Hunger Relief Fund today.
