Eastern Africa has been enduring one of the largest famines they've had in years.

The Church continues to be involved with other charities such as International Medical Corps and International Relief and Development to bring in supplies and create facilities for those that live in Eastern Africa, according to an LDS.org article.

Support includes: sanitation supplies and facilities, hygiene training and nutrition centers, water tanks and catchment, storage structures and medical facilities.

The charities have also provided food supplements for about 8,700 children, many 500-gallon water tanks were taken to 22 sites, about 5,000 hygiene kits and medical care for over 9,000 people, according to the article.
