Horn of Africa Appeal

Together we are Stronger. Together we are Making an Impact.

September 2022

The Irish Emergency Alliance's Horn of Africa appeal has successfully raised €650,000 to support communities facing severe drought and hunger in the region. This collaborative effort among seven leading humanitarian agencies aims to address critical needs in Ethiopia, Somalia, and Kenya, where millions are affected by the worst drought in over 40 years.
