The ACT Alliance (Action by Churches Together), of which the ELCA is a member, in a recent update shares how the drought is continuing to affect people within the Horn of Africa. With 13 million people still feeling the affects of the drought, water, food and disease still rank as the top areas of need. The update also discusses the possibility that some of areas of the region may actually be seeing complete changes in climate, with pastures turning into deserts.

Check out the full update, as well as the many other reports and updates from ACT, for more information.
