G7 leaders are meeting this Friday – and despite previous promises, they’re failing to act on the hunger crisis hitting East Africa.
Hunger will soon reach its peak with one person likely to die of hunger every 28 seconds between now and July across Ethiopia, Kenya, Somalia and South Sudan.
Magnus Corfixen Oxfam’s Humanitarian Lead:
“The silence of G7 leaders on the crisis in East Africa is deafening given the commitments they made just two short years ago. Their decision to cover their eyes and ears to the human cost of hunger is reprehensible.”
