With the greatest humanitarian crisis to hit our world in modern times, the drought in the Horn of Africa has become the focus of charitable activity across the world.
Millions of people are facing death, more than half of those who have already died are children. Tens of thousands are being displaced and will require re-settlement. And as the drought continues the situation is worsening daily.
The Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC) and the 14 overseas development agencies it represents are raising funds to improve the chance of survival for those effected.
On Saturday 30 July radio 103 The Eye FM held a day-long awareness appeal, featuring interviews with local experts & DEC organisations, talking to those recently returned from the drought area and hearing what be can do to help.
