Save the Children and Grey’s Anatomy Star Kevin McKidd Release PSAs to Help Children in East Africa Crisis
WESTPORT, Conn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Save the Children has partnered with Grey’s Anatomy star Kevin McKidd to generate more awareness of the emergency situation in East Africa, which is threatening the lives of more than 10 million people. The new Public Service Announcements released today highlight the needs of children and their families who are suffering from the worst drought in decades.
“These families have been left with no crops, livestock or water,” said McKidd, a Save the Children supporter. “Save the Children has set up emergency feeding centers to provide food, water and medical care to thousands of people each day, but more help is urgently needed. Aid workers are reporting that children are walking 50 to 60 miles, often carrying younger siblings on their backs, in order to reach these emergency centers.”
McKidd says he hopes the PSAs will inspire more people to help these children. Donors can learn more about how to help by visiting Save the Children’s website or can donate $10 by texting "SURVIVE" to 20222 (U.S. Only, standard messaging rates apply). source
