Thank you for visiting USAID's FWD Campaign. This public awareness campaign was launched in partnership with the Ad Council in September 2011, and the campaign concluded in March 2012. In February 2012, famine abated in Somalia and improvements were seen throughout the Horn due to the large international aid effort combined with rain across the region. While the FWD campaign has ended, there is still much to be done to help those in need in Kenya, Ethiopia, Djibouti and Somalia. To learn more about USAID's ongoing work in the region, visit http://www.usaid.gov/locations/sub-saharan_africa/

Famine, War, and Drought are threatening millions of lives in the Horn of Africa and the world should be talking about it. Do more than donate. FWD the facts.
