East Africa Hunger Crisis

East Africa Hunger Crisis

Beginning in 2011, Music for Relief joined K’naan and the American Refugee Committee as a part of the I AM A STAR campaign to raise awareness in the U.S. about the hunger crisis in the Horn of Africa.  The goal is to inspire people to get involved at the local level to help provide famine relief and shine a light on Somali culture and people.  MFR pledged $50,000 to support Banadir Hospital as well as another $50,000  to “Kitchen Mamas,” a pilot program designed to help distribute information about health, WASH and disease protection, while improving access to service providers for gender-based violence and health providers who can treat cholera, HIV/AIDS and malnutrition.
