Each year, CARE joins the humanitarian community and the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organisation to observe World Food Day – a day that spotlights the global fight against food insecurity. That struggle is more relevant than ever in the Horn of Africa, where more than 13 million people remain locked in the grip of the world’s worst food crisis.
As our bloggers have discussed over the past three months, CARE is responding to the crisis by providing food, safe water and sanitation services, as well as support for the treatment of acute malnutrition among children under 5. To date we have reached more than 1.5 million people.
The following video will give you some insight into what CARE has been doing to fight food insecurity throughout this crisis.
