Only together it is possible to battle the disaster.

As a result of the severe drought in the Horn of Africa, millions of East Africans are on the brink of famine. There are more people that need help than the agencies can help or have funding for.

"Famine is expected to spread across all regions of the south in the coming four to six weeks," the UN Food Security and Nutrition Analysis Unit said in a statement on Wednesday, warning that the famine in the affected regions was "likely to persist until at least December 2011".

"A humanitarian emergency persists across all other regions of southern Somalia, and tens of thousands of excess deaths have already occurred," the UN unit said. "The current situation represents the most severe humanitarian crisis in the world today and Africa's worst food security crisis since Somalia's 1991-92 famine."
