Join us in this livestream fundraiser featuring Dr. Abdullah Hakim Quick, and Boonaa Mohammed. Our aim is to raise awareness about the impact of COVID-19 in East Africa, and to raise funds for families in need across the region..
The number of confirmed cases is rapidly increasing in the region. In an effort to prevent the spread of the virus, many countries in the region have started curfews and lockdowns, closed off local markets, and restrictions on movements. These measures may seem helpful but are detrimental to the majority of the people, who heavily rely on day to day work to feed their families.
Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, food insecurity in the region was already alarmingly high due to the threat to the agricultural seasons by the ongoing desert locust outbreak and the ongoing phenomena of drought and flooding. Now, with the spread of the pandemic and economic shock resulting from the crisis, the magnitude and severity of food shortage is expected to be Catastrophic.
