Hope Dries Up

Description

A mother from Apengan, Papua New Guinea, fetches water from a water hole that’s nearly dried up.

She’s come to this place, the main source of water for nearby communities, to fill her buckets and jars. Due to a long dry season, there’s little water available.

Millions throughout East Africa, Central America, and the Middle East face hunger in 2016 stemming from the impact of particularly harsh El Niño weather conditions, global aid agencies say. Reeling from crop loss, livestock deaths, and other disasters, residents in Ethiopia, South Sudan, and Yemen are feeling it the worst, according to the Famine Early Warning System Network.

World Vision is mounting a response throughout southern and eastern Africa and in the Pacific Islands, including Papua New Guinea. The work includes food assistance, nutritional feeding, and interventions that complement ongoing innovative resilience-building programs for the most vulnerable.
