Scottish Government pledges £200k to East Africa Appeal
The Scottish Government has announced that it will donate £200,000 to the Disaster Emergencies Committee's East Africa Appeal.
First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said:
“The UN has warned there is an urgent need for humanitarian response to prevent thousands of people dying from starvation. The funding we’re donating will help provide emergency food, safe drinking water, life-saving nutritional support and emergency healthcare to those affected.
“The Scottish Government is clear we have a responsibility to be a good global citizen and support those in crisis elsewhere in the world. I encourage the people of Scotland to also consider supporting the DEC East Africa Crisis Appeal in whatever ways they can.”
