Dutch Horn of Africa appeal tops 16 million
The joint Dutch charities appeal for the Horn of Africa has topped the 16-million-euro mark.
The SHO joint charities organisation says part of the money has already been used to supply emergency aid for the region which has been hit by drought and subsequent famine.
This week has been dubbed in the Netherlands, and all sorts of fund-raising activities are being organised. Individuals, organisations and companies are all joining in the effort to raise cash.
