Ethiopia Food Crisis: 5 Things You Can Do to Help
Following two consecutive crop failures, continued drought and other effects of climate change, Ethiopia faces further losses that many fear will result in a massive food crisis.
More than 10 million people in Ethiopia face chronic hunger. Currently, no end is in sight for families. They are running out of options. Children are forced to quit school. Out of desperation, families are selling their few assets to buy food from dwindling local supplies.
Catholic Relief Services has served Ethiopia for more than 50 years. We know the people and their needs. We work hand in hand with the government of Ethiopia and local Catholic churches to reach those most in need of help.
Ethiopia’s drought and hunger crisis is deep and expected to get worse. With climate change and El Nino accelerating an already dire situation, experts predict massive food shortages and hunger for millions unless Ethiopians receive help soon.
