Dadaab refugee crisis

Funding for the world's largest refugee settlement is running out, as five Lutheran World Federation-managed camps struggle to cope with housing more than 500,000 displaced people who fled conflict and famine.

A report issued by relief agency partners that include the LWF, Catholic Relief Services, the Danish Refugee Council, Oxfam and others, states that clean water and sanitation services are in danger and "the threat of cholera is greatly increased."

To help, send gifts designated "Horn of Africa Drought" to ELCA Disaster Response, 39330 Treasury Center, Chicago, IL 60694-9300; give online or call 800-638-3522.
