World Council of Churches (WCC), General Board of Global Ministries and UMCOR – United Methodist Committee On Relief invite all United Methodists to join us in prayer on May 21, 2017, the Global Day of Prayer to End Famine.
Communities in #Somalia, South Sudan, North East Nigeria and Yemen are living through famine. Almost 1.4 million are suffering from severe, acute malnutrition, the deadliest form of malnutrition. If left untreated, more than one-third of these children will die from starvation and disease. Those who survive will likely endure lifelong negative effects, such as stunted growth and poor brain development.
Let us pray for the children and families impacted by famine, as well as, those who make sacrifices in helping to respond to the crisis, around the world.
