Africa_helpfotoDear Friends,

Ethiopian and Somalian children are dying from starvation and Raindrop Helping Hands invites you to support them.

African people have been displaced because of the drought. There are more than 400,000 Somalian refugees staying in the Dadaab Camp near Kenya and the number is increasing.

Recently, Adrian Edwards, the Official Representative of the UN stated that the Dadaab Camp is the world's largest refugee camp.

The only hope of survival is the food and water at refugee camps which is given to one of every four refugees who left their hometown. According to the UN report, two million children are undernourished and in order for them to survive very urgent support is needed.

Raindrop Helping Hands launches a campaign to eliminate water and nutrition needs in Africa.
