The food crisis in East Africa brought by drought and conflicts is threatening the lives of 20 million Africans. Members of the Integral Alliance (IA) are working tirelessly in providing food to Somali, Kenya, and Ethiopia. CEDAR is currently focusing on helping Ethiopia through our local partners and member agencies of the IA.
Ecuador has experienced several earthquakes in April 2016 that caused the death of 650 and the miseries of another 380 thousand. Half a year later, the central American Haiti experienced a tornado that affected 2 million of its countrymen. We are thankful for the support of the Christian body for channeling their funds through us to the member organizations of the Integral Alliance (IA) within both countries, who worked tirelessly in alleviating the situation.
A farmer could only grow crops with the help of a fine weather, the fertile land, and the technique he/she possesses. Sadly, the weather is often against men’s will, and its impact reaches beyond the immediate food scarcity; the inability to store crops and seeds also hampers the subsequent farming activates. Unfortunately, the El noir in the past 3 years have caused severe drought in multiple eastern African countries, and a tremendous amount of people are suffering from famine, especially for countries like Zimbabwe, where over 65% of its population survives on farming.
