A climate crisis, where the rising of global temperatures is creating extreme weather, including severe heat waves and drought, is creating a widespread humanitarian crisis in the Horn of Africa.

Prolonged and frequent droughts across the region, particularly in Somalia, Ethiopia and Kenya, are threatening the lives of millions of children. Violent storms are leading to immediate, life-threatening dangers for children, including malnutrition and higher risk of infectious and diarrheal diseases.

The effects of climate crisis are causing people to leave their homes in search of new beginnings and, in most cases, people are left with little choice but to relocate in order to survive.
