Across East Africa, more than four million children are in desperate need of food, water and medical aid. Following a prolonged drought, food prices are soaring and the situation is made even more desperate by the conflict in Somalia.

A child is dying of hunger every six minutes in Somalia. In six minutes, your child can paint or draw a picture that can mean the difference between life and death for someone else’s child.

All art donated to Kids Draw for East Africa will be auctioned online.

If you’re a parent, nursery manager or teacher, please consider getting your kids involved. Contact us at kidsdraw5050[at]gmail[dot]com

Email us a photo or send us the original and we will put your child’s painting up on the auction site. When it’s up there, we’ll send you the link to tell all of your friends and family about the auction of your child’s art. Send us the original and we’ll arrange for it to be posted to the highest bidder.

All funds raised will be donated to UNICEF and you can keep up to date with how we’re doing on the 5050.gd platform.

To keep it simple, we’re using eBay to sell the art and to avoid any admin charges (as associated with eBay for Charity) we’re donating 100% of the proceeds ourselves directly to UNICEF. A small postage/packing fee will be charged to cover mail-out costs.

Thank you for your support,

John and Charlotte
