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.
