The rains are coming.
This may sound like a beautiful sentiment for the East African refugees who have suffered from severe droughts in the Horn of Africa during this past year. While the rains bring new life and revival, they also bring many waterborne diseases. It’s estimated that about 75,000 people in Dadaab alone could fall ill due to the spread of disease.
LWR works hard to promote disaster prevention methods to countries who suffer from frequent natural disasters and other maladies. We also work to create awareness and implement positive change. Please take the time to find out how your generosity can significantly better the lives of the East Africans.
