This month, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are making a special visit to UNICEF's Emergency Supply Centre in Copenhagen, to help put the global spotlight back onto the humanitarian crisis in East Africa.
Right now, children in East Africa are facing a desperate crisis caused by prolonged drought, soaring food prices and conflict. Famine has been declared in several areas of southern Somalia.
This crisis is getting worse and we need to act now to save lives.
Children and women are the most vulnerable. A total of 6.7 million children in Somalia, Kenya and Ethiopia need urgent assistance, including almost 320,000 children with life-threatening severe acute malnutrition.
UNICEF provides life-saving therapeutic feeding for children, access to safe water and sanitation, and vaccination campaigns to prevent the spread of killer diseases such as measles.
William and Kate hope their UNICEF royal visit will raise awareness of the crisis in East Africa, and encourage the public to support our appeal for funds to help millions of children at risk.
