Media CenterFrom Reuters: Failed Springs Worsen Ethiopia Drought
The effects of the drought in Ethiopia are on-going due to climate change and El Nino changing weather patterns for the worse. Many families are without food and are struggling to survive. In a recent to Ethiopia, Kim Pozniak, communications officer for emergencies and Sub-Saharan Africa, describes what she saw in an interview from Reuters.
"The landscape there really looks apocalyptic - it's just gray dust and stone. There were dead cattle lying everywhere in between the cactuses. The locals were telling me there are so many dead cattle, not even the hyenas can eat them all."
