Call to Action
The Youth of the Northern Illinois Conference of the United Methodist Church are called to action on behalf of the twenty million people in the Horn of Africa who are out of options. 1.4 million children are at risk of perishing. We are called to lead, to give a voice to the voiceless and urge all people of faith to prevent a looming humanitarian disaster.
What Can We Do?
Participate in a Letter-writing campaign to request the United States to reinstate aid and be a leader in the world community to prevent a famine that WILL be worse than the famine of 2011 that killed a quarter million people.
Discover ways to raise needed funds to assist the people who have nowhere to go and are in desperation.
Educate our congregations to the effects of the famine and to prevent the increasing instability and chaos to the region. Neighboring countries are being inundated with severely malnourished refugees seeking assistance.
Please plan on attending this very special Youth Session!
