Southern Africa El Nino Emergency Response

World Vision Malaysia has completed its fundraising effort for Southern Africa El Nino Emergency Response. If you would like to support our work in ongoing disasters and emergencies around the world, please give to General Humanitarian Emergencies Fund.

This crisis is affecting up to 29 million people across Southern Africa.

The worst of the El Nino is likely to hit from November 2015 till early 2016.

World Vision is hoping to raise USD70 million for short and long term interventions across nine countries: Angola, DRC, Lesotho, Malawi, Mozambique, South Africa, Swaziland, Zambia and Zimbabwe. Help will be provided through food aid, distribution of drought-tolerant seeds, healthcare to support young children and, pregnant and lactating women, water distribution and livelihood opportunities.

This weather crisis has serious ramifications on the lives of children - including malnutrition, vulnerability to disease, dropping out of school, child labour, water shortages and wide despondency.
