Jersey Overseas Aid (JOA) is sending £200,000 to East African countries to help millions of people who are starving.
Famine was declared in South Sudan last month, something which hasn't happened anywhere in the world for six years.
It means international organisations are recognising that people are officially dying of hunger.
Other countries will also benefit including Somalia, Kenya and Ehtiopia who are facing drought and starvation.
The funds will go to the British Red Cross and Plan International to pay for food rations, hygiene kits, water purification tablets, shelter items and medical supplies.
JOA say the situation has been caused by three years of conflict, with widespread displacement of people, economic collapse and disruption to agriculture.
Last year £30,000 was donated to the crisis and JOA has been following conditions for sometime.
