East Africa Needs Your Help

East Africa is in a state of crisis and, as UK Ambassador for UNICEF, Robbie is asking for your help.

The devastating drought, the worst in 50 years, the conflict and the rising food prices have together created a situation that means over 2m children under the age of five in the region are currently at risk. Risk of disease. Risk of starvation.

In just one refugee camp in Kenya, there are nearly half a million people in urgent need of food, water and basic healthcare. The situation throughout the region is becoming more and more critical; the threat of starvation is very real.

is on the ground doing what they can but need to raise much more vital life-saving funding. They need your help.

Please donate what you can, any amount is welcome, to help UNICEF to bring aid to those suffering in East Africa.
