Run, Rain, Africa

In partnership with Lifeline Foundation, World Food Programme (WFP), invites everyone to join Rain 4Africa: A Lifeline to Africa Run to raise awareness and channel donations to East Africa, which is now facing the worst famine crisis in 20 years.

In its press launch held yesterday, WFP's Stephen Anderson and Lifeline's Betty Romero encourage everyone to join them on this cause to help our fellows in East Africa survive from this crisis. He said that by just joining Rain 4Africa Run, you are giving life to thousands of people in that place.
