Horn of Africa

HOM - Horn of Africa

In 2011, House of Mercy Children’s Home, Lagos, Nigeria (HOM) showed solidarity with the children of the Horn of Africa by lending its support to on-going efforts to provide humanitarian assistance to the people of the Horn of Africa who were hit by the worst drought in 60 years.

The crisis affected the whole Horn of Africa region with 13 million people in need of emergency assistance in Somalia, Kenya, Ethiopia and Djibouti at the height of the crisis.

Our vision is of a prosperous and peaceful African continent where every child has access to healthy food on a daily and regular basis and is enabled to reach his or her full potential.
