Activist Faith

News networks are now communicating what many have known behind the scenes for some time–East Africa is in a desperate situation due to its current famine. These are our brothers and sisters. We need to help.

Where to begin? First, you can see some of the ways others are already trying to help. The video below from CNN features the work of MercyCorps.

Here is the link of several NGOs already helping provide food, water and other emergency services. If you serve at a non-profit that is helping in any way, please feel free to add you contact information and brief overview in the comments below for others to see. I also may feature it in the days ahead.

Thank you in advance for any and all help you can give. Don’t wait. Help today. Someone’s life depends on it.
