Over 50 Million Affected by the Sub-Saharan Hunger Crisis

The Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada joins Canadian Lutheran World Relief in asking its members to consider donating to those suffering from hunger in sub-Saharan Africa. 

Together with the Humanitarian Coalition, CLWR is appealing for donations to respond to a historic hunger crisis. As a record 50 million people are on the brink of starvation, the Government of Canada is matching donations from Canadians to provide emergency assistance.

Your gift today will be doubled to provide life-saving aid in countries like Somalia, Ethiopia and South Sudan, which are facing years of drought, climate shocks and supply disruptions caused by the war in Ukraine.

More than 50 million people are facing starvation. The needs are enormous, but we can all do something. You can make a difference— please consider giving, and giving generously.
