On November 2 2011, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge made a special visit to our Emergency Supply Centre in Copenhagen, to help put the global spotlight back on the humanitarian crisis in East Africa.
Their visit generated global news coverage and led to nearly £1 million in further donations to the emergency appeal in the UK.
Children across East Africa are facing a desperate crisis caused by drought, high food prices and ongoing conflict in Somalia. Over 320,000 children are so severely malnourished that they are at imminent risk of starving to death without urgent help.

The Duchess of Cambridge helps UNICEF warehouse worker Isaac Maina to pack emergency health kits, ready to be sent to East Africa.
The Duke and Duchess are hugely concerned about the number of children at risk, especially as East Africa is a part of the world very close to their hearts.
