Many non-governmental organizations are actively contributing to the drought response. The International Federation of the Red Cross and Red Crescent is one of the major organizations operating in the Horn. Care International, Oxfam and Concern supply emergency food, water, seed and monetary aid to drought-affected communities. Veterinarians without Borders and Terra Nuova provide animal health services to vulnerable pastoralist communities. World Vision International, Save the Children and others have set up therapeutic feeding centres to assist malnourished children and provide essential medical care.
