Drought in Africa: June 27 phone briefing

War, drought and famine come together to create a ‘perfect storm’ of devastation and suffering in East Africa. Learn more in an exclusive IRC phone briefing.

Just one year ago, the worst drought in 60 years ravaged the Horn of Africa and put 13 million people at mortal risk. This summer the global community braces for another cycle of devastation extending from East Africa northwest through the Sahel region.
Join us for a briefing from the field with IRC experts as they assess the widening disaster, describe the impact of the IRC’s response in the region and chart the promise of lifesaving results if sufficient resources are mobilized in time.
