    Rain is universally thought to be life-giving. In a drought-stricken East Africa region, rain is usually greeted with singing and dancing. Recently however, heavy rains and Tropical Storm Sagar have instead brought destruction to lives, homes, and livelihoods in East Africa. The numbers impacted are staggering

    • 2 million people affected
    • 700,000 people displaced and forced to find shelter, food, and water
    • Thousands of homes, schools, health care centers and water systems have been damaged and destroyed
    • Livestock have died and crops have been washed away
