Many charities such as Christian Aid, Save the Children and Oxfam continue to work around the clock to bring desperately needed aid to the more than 10 million people affected by the East Africa food crisis. The UK public has so far donated over £57m, making it one of the most generously supported appeals in the DEC’s history. The sheer scale of the disaster, however, means that donations are still needed to save lives.
The initiatives are not limited to providing much-needed food and medical supplies, but also fund other initiatives such as mobile health clinics, training, seeds and equipment for farmers, and the digging of wells and boreholes that provide clean and safe water to thousands.
So why not get some Blue Dots now by contributing to the DEC appeal? It couldn’t be easier: Simply click on the big blue “Donate” button on the homepage or click here, then search for DEC. Your donation will be safely processed through Just Giving, and you’ll get some lovely Blue Dots to spend on some really cool offers and display proudly on your profiles and active CV!
