Video: Thank you from East Africa

With your help, Oxfam has provided life-giving support to more than 2.8 million people across drought-stricken areas of East Africa.

Six months ago Oxfam launched its biggest ever Africa appeal in response to the drought in Ethiopia, Kenya and Somalia. The crisis is one of the worst we have faced in many years - more than 13 million people have been affected, thousands have died, and many families have lost their livelihoods.

The situation remains extremely concerning, especially in Somalia. But your help has gone a very long way. In response to the appeal, the public all over the world donated around $32m to Oxfam.

This response has saved many lives and Oxfam continues to provide emergency and long-term support to nearly 3 million people affected across the region, helping them recover and cope with future droughts.
