Description

The Ethiopian government says more than 10 million people including nearly 6 million children will need emergency food by January because of drought. Authorities say the government is currently distributing its own emergency food aid because pledges made by donors have not yet been delivered. Deputy Prime Minister Demeke Mekonnen estimated that the drought will continue well into 2016 and cited lack of transportation and food supplies as major obstacles. According to Save the Children, Ethiopia is experiencing its worst drought in 50 years and $1.4bn in aid is needed to adequately respond to the emergency. Fortunately no lives have been lost as a result of the drought.
