Emergency Relief & Disaster Crises
CAF America International
Severe drought coupled with rapidly increasing food prices related to the war in Ukraine has deepened food insecurity, creating a child malnutrition emergency. This disaster is spread across the Horn of Africa — the easternmost region of Africa that includes parts or all of Djibouti, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Kenya, Somalia, Sudan and South Sudan.
More than 37 million people are facing acute hunger, with approximately seven million children under the age of five acutely malnourished in the region.
USAID Administrator Samantha Power announced nearly $1.2 billion in additional humanitarian funding for the drought response. This funding will support emergency food assistance, nutrition support, agricultural support, and WASH interventions.
While finding food and safe water is the absolute priority, the WHO, has stated that ensuring a strong health emergency response is needed to avert preventable disease and deaths. The UN agency is calling for $123.7 million to respond to rising health needs and prevent a food crisis from turning into a health crisis. “The situation is already catastrophic, and we need to act now,” said Ibrahima Soce Fall, WHO Assistant Director General for Emergencies Response. “We cannot continue in this under-funding crisis”……..
Prophet Reward Foundation (PRF) partnered with CAF-America International and created a Disaster Response and Resiliency Network Program to bring efforts together in a cohesive group to share with the US donors, cooperate, companies, government institutions, individuals, families, friends, volunteers, for disaster response relief efforts. PRF Charity became an international organization validated by CAF America to receive USA tax exempt donations and grants. Through CAF America, a US 501 (c) (3) charity (US tax ID no 43-1634280), American supporters, trusts and foundations can give tax-deductible donations to Prophet Reward Foundation (PRF) in disaster, emergency response before and after crises happen.
As the Covid-19 pandemic continues to unfold in different ways, there is a dire need to step up humanitarian support to the most vulnerable people in the community. Through this partnership support, we have reached over 1,000 families supplying them with survival food packs. Millions of Kenyans are facing numerous challenges due to the impact of Covid-19, and many residents in the slums where we operate are unemployed or depend on daily casual work.
