    The U.N. has declared this the largest humanitarian crisis since 1945. In Yemen alone, the lack of food and basic resources is so dire that a child under five dies every 10 minutes. You can act now to help the millions of people affected by this devastating hunger. Please donate to #FightFamine, link in the bio.

    Repost from @globalemergencyresponse: The Global Emergency Response Coalition was formed in response to starvation threatening more than 20 million people in #Nigeria, #Yemen, #SouthSudan, #Somalia and neighboring countries. Humanitarian and Victoria's Secret model @lilydonaldson visited South Sudan this year, and invites you to support the Coalition's efforts to #FightFamine.

    At 12 years old, Omar* suddenly found himself having to work to support his family after his father was killed in the Syria conflict. Every day he works in a dangerous fuel market where he uses his bucket and sponge to soak up spilled fuel, squeeze it into his bucket and sell what he has collected. Hundreds of children like Omar are forced to work every day. We’re helping many of them return to school by supporting their families with food baskets, conducting awareness-raising campaigns and reopening schools—but there are still so many children who are being forced to give up their education and to work in incredibly dangerous environments. You can help support our mission: http://ow.ly/BnNE30dFuvG *Name changed for protection

    Najma, 9, is a reading buddy in our Literacy Boost initiative. She was paired with a student who needed extra help reading and now they spend time outside the classroom practicing together. Our three-pronged approach to the program includes assessments, teacher training and community action to significantly improve a child’s core reading skills. We believe that more children will learn to read if they are well supported to do so in their classroom and beyond the school walls.
