We are a group of Minnesotans, most of us with East African roots, interested in navigating the famine and drought crisis. "What can we do?" we asked ourselves. This is the result: to encourage smart giving. As we look at short term aid to the famine-stricken regions it is imperative that we discuss the long term solutions while looking at climate change and global food security.
We are NOT an aid agency. We have listed
here (http://eastafricarelief.tumblr.com/action), organizations that we have identified as grassroots led with a history of working in the region. Please consider donating either money or your time and skills to them.
