Please help people facing life-threatening hunger.

Right now, over 14,000 women, men and children are on the verge of famine in southern Madagascar, off the southeast coast of Africa. They are paying the devastating price for a climate crisis they have done nothing to create. 

Please donate now

Families and people with disabilities are fighting for survival. Any gift from you will provide urgent support.

People have resorted to eating insects, leaves and cactus plants to survive.

Back-to-back droughts in southern Madagascar have left thousands of people in catastrophic conditions, facing desperate hunger. That number is likely to double by October without urgent help, according to the UN's World Food Programme.

People are already dying - and if the world continues to ignore this "invisible crisis", many more will lose their lives.

CBM has been working with our partner in the region to provide urgent humanitarian relief to the most vulnerable families, especially those with disabilities.

But as the scale of the crisis grows, we urgently need your help to reach more women, men and children facing life-threatening hunger.

This is not because of war or conflict, this is because of climate change. This is an area of the world that has contributed nothing to climate change, but now, they’re the ones paying the highest price.David Beasley, Director of UN World Food Programme

Satry Ramaroson from the CBM Madagascar team explains why the situation is so desperate.

Please help now

Your gift will go directly to efforts to protect the most vulnerable people in this crisis. Please help them now.

Your donation will help us to provide urgent support needed by people in southern Madagascar. In the event of excess funds, we’ll make sure your gift goes to help people living with disability struggling in poverty and emergency situations or where the need is greatest.

Thank you
