Across East Africa, tens of millions are facing severe hunger due to ongoing drought, conflicts and the fallouts from Covid-19. Due to the scale of human suffering, this hunger crisis in East Africa is one of the worst humanitarian situations in the world, according to the UN.
Amid deteriorating levels of malnutrition, Tearfund has been responding in Ethiopia. Over the past nine months, our generous donors have supported emergency food distributions to 11,000 drought-affected people in Southern Ethiopia, which has helped draw many people back from the brink of starvation.
However, the impacts of the drought in Ethiopia and across East Africa remain severe, and our continued support is needed to ensure people survive.
Join us as we continue to distribute emergency food to thousands of the most vulnerable families in Ethiopia and help them rebuild their lives.
