Over 16 million people across South Sudan, Somalia, Ethiopia and Kenya are in urgent need of food, following months of drought. CAFOD is working with our local Church partners on the ground, who are providing vital aid to communities affected by hunger and drought. Please support the appeal by organising a collection in your parish or putting details of how people can donate to the appeal in the newsletter.
