In South Sudan, Oxfam helped more than 600,000 people across the country in 2016 and with famine declared we will need to reach many more people this year. We're making sure the most vulnerable people have access to safe water and helping to repair boreholes and wells, providing emergency food distribution and training people to look after and maintain their own water supply.
In Ethiopia, we have provided over 270,000 people and 75 schools and health centres with water through water trucking and setting up water storage points, and aim to help another 450,000 people in the next three months.
In Kenya, we aim to reach over 300,000 people within the next six months, repairing boreholes and distributing cash.
In Somalia we are launching our humanitarian response, and plan to reach 10,000 people. We are expecting to expand our response as the drought impact deepens.
Oxfam is working across the region to provide life-saving support to those most in need of help. We urgently need to get food and clean water to women, men and children facing starvation. It's a race against time to save lives.
