UCC issues East Africa famine appeal
Famine has officially been declared in South Sudan and, for the first time in recent history, there is a very real possibility of four famines – in Somalia, South Sudan, Nigeria, and Yemen – breaking out all at once. The United Church of Christ has issued an appeal for $50,000 for East Africa famine relief. It also is urging observance of the World Council of Churches’ Global Day of Prayer to End Famine on May 21, and advocacy with the U.S. government to release emergency funding to avert catastrophe in these four countries.
