Any money that you donate will go to Rokia, a seven-year-old girl
who lives in Mali in Africa. Rokia is desperately poor and faces a
threat of severe hunger, even starvation. Her life will be changed
for the better as a result of your financial gift. With your
support, and the support of other caring sponsors, Save the
Children will work with Rokia's family and other members of the
community to help feed and educate her, and provide her with
basic medical care
Food shortages in Malawi are affecting more than three million
children. In Zambia, severe rainfall deficits have resulted in a 42%
drop in maize production from 2000. As a result, an estimated
three million Zambians face hunger. Four million Angolans — one-
third of the population — have been forced to flee their homes.
More than 11 million people in Ethiopia need immediate food
assistance.
