Where We Work
World Relief and our partners are already on the ground in Burundi, Kenya, Malawi, Somaliland, South Sudan and Sudan, serving people in many of the hardest hit regions.
This self-declared independent state within Somalia is experiencing severe drought, which has depleted livestock and forced many Somali to flee their homes. World Relief is distributing emergency food relief and providing access to lifesaving water, sanitation and hygiene.
Due to a collision of drought and population growth, nearly 4 million Kenyans are now food insecure. World Relief is providing food assistance to vulnerable households in Turkana North, conducting nutrition outreach and health screening for children under five.
Water deficit, pests and plant diseases have sharply increased food shortages throughout Burundi. In partnership with UNICEF, World Relief is conducting malnutrition screening for children and working with farmers to bolster agriculture production and resilience against future crises.
Cycles of massive flooding followed by prolonged droughts have destroyed crops, livestock and houses in southern and central Malawi. In partnership with the World Food Programme, World Relief is mobilizing local church leaders to distribute monthly supplies of maize, corn-soy blend, salt and oil to vulnerable families.
Regional conflict has displaced 1.85 million South Sudanese, creating competition for scarce resources, including food. World Relief is providing agricultural training as well as life saving screening and treatment for acutely malnourished children and pregnant mothers.
Violence in the Darfur region continues to force many Sudanese to abandon their homes, disrupting their ability to produce or buy food. World Relief is providing screening and treatment of individuals suffering moderate and severe malnutrition, working to improve the nutritional status of children under five.
