Emergency Food Relief for Ethiopia

Glimmer has completed fundraising for this campaign.

Edit text

The drought devastating Ethiopia is at a critical point. More than 400,000 children are severely malnourished and 10 million people are in urgent need of food.

While the remarkable progress across Ethiopia in recent years provides a strong foundation for the country to recover, we must come together to protect the hardest hit communities where people are suffering and lives are at stake.

In November, Glimmer committed $250,000 for emergency food through one of our most trusted partners. They are on the frontlines providing life-sustaining grain through a program at local schools. However, it is not enough.

Help us double our efforts and continue to provide food through the peak of the drought. 100% of your donation will go directly to emergency food relief through our local partner. You will have a direct and immediate impact on children and families in Ethiopia. 

Thank you for your support,

~ Donna & Philip
