Urgent Appeal: Madagascar Famine

Please help us support Malagasy families facing famine!

As the drought in southern Madagascar tightens its grip, 850,000 Malagasy people are facing extreme hunger. Having exhausted all their food reserves, many families are resorting to eating cacti and boiled ashes to quell their hunger. Without urgent humanitarian intervention, these families will face starvation.
