A 7.5 magnitude earthquake triggered a devastating and deadly tsunami on the island nation of Indonesia.
Tsunami waves have reportedly reached as high as nearly 10 feet!
The local government has declared a state of emergency.
Initial reports indicate more than 48,000 people displaced.
1,500 have lost their lives — a number tragically expected to rise significantly, once hard-to-reach communities are accessed and the full scope of the disaster comes to light!
This tsunami has created a crisis for countless children and families — with life-or-death consequences.
Victims desperately need food, clean water, and emergency supplies right now in order to survive.
Today, you can meet these urgent needs — faithfully answering God’s call to respond to suffering — and help save their lives.
655,000 Rohingya refugees have fled ethnic-based violence in Myanmar and are right now trapped in refugee camps in Bangladesh. They are in dire need of clean water and healthcare support. All over the world, refugees are on the move. Millions of people across East Africa are in severe food crisis due to drought conditions and violent conflict. A protracted conflict in Yemen has resulted in the most severe cholera outbreak ever witnessed, with hundreds of thousands of children affected.
We need your help to get emergency relief as quickly as possible to the people who need it the most. Please give whatever you can today; families need food, medicine, and shelter now. Food for the Hungry was launched as one man’s passionate response to a global hunger crisis and his conviction that poverty would not stop any individual from living a thriving life.
Today, our world is facing massive emergencies and Food for the Hungry is once again stepping into the gap. While global hunger rates have fallen over the past few decades, acute famines have recently emerged in multiple regions. Violent conflict, natural disasters, climate change, and poverty are causing families to literally starve.
“We stand at a critical point in history. We are facing the largest humanitarian crisis since the creation of the UN,” UN Emergency Relief Coordinator Stephen O’Brien
