The worst drought in 60 years has left more than 13 million people in the Horn of Africa dependent on emergency aid for survival.
The hardest hit area is southern Somalia, where chronic instability and violence have transformed a grave emergency into a catastrophic famine.
Countless families are being broken up as mothers and children leave Somalia in search of relief while their husbands stay behind to care for relatives who are too old, too sick, or too weak from hunger to flee. These heroic women and their families are survivors of the century's biggest humanitarian emergency. Find out how you can help by visiting http://www.care.org

A child is much more likely to survive into adulthood if the severe risks of infancy can be mitigated and they reach that important milestone of their 5th birthday.
