Emergency response

Ethiopia: Food insecurity persists

3.5-million people are displaced and food insecurity threatens families, with about 20-million in need of food.

Disaster overview

Families are trapped in a cycle of dire food insecurity perpetuated by poor infrastructure and lack of resources. In addition, limited health and other services have contributed to an upsurge of diseases such as cholera, dengue, measles and malaria. Join us in assisting those most effected with the resources they need to break this cycle.
