Angola: Hunger crisis

Angola is facing its worst recorded drought in 40 years, with southern provinces experiencing the fifth consecutive year of drought conditions. The drought has led to poor harvests, depleted reserves, loss of livestock and rising food prices—with an estimated 1.58 million people now facing high levels of acute food insecurity. Through this Emergency Appeal, the IFRC will support the Angola Red Cross to save lives, reverse the deterioration of food security and nutrition, and improve the resilience of affected populations in the hardest hit areas.
