Ethiopia Humanitarian Aid
By VoiceEthiopia About Save The Children
Save the Children provides life-saving aid to children and families in Ethiopia, Kenya and Somalia whose lives are at risk due to severe food shortages sparked by drought, crop failures and livestock deaths. The UN has called this East Africa’s worst drought in 60 years.
Millions of children are in danger of becoming critically malnourished due to severe droughts in the region. Save the Children is already on the ground saving lives. They rapidly are providing food, water, medicine and crucial support to families who have lost their incomes.
Since the famine in 1984, Save the Children has grown to meet the constant challenges of a country that ranks as one of the five or six least developed in the world. Through humanitarian response and development programs throughout the country, Save the Children continues to improve the health, education and well-being of children and their families, making a difference in the lives of over 4.8 million Ethiopians.
Save the Children is the leading independent organization for children in need, with programs in 120 countries, including the United States. We aim to inspire breakthroughs in the way the world treats children, and to achieve immediate and lasting change in their lives by improving their health, education and economic opportunities. In times of acute crisis, we mobilize rapid assistance to help children recover from the effects of war, conflict and natural disasters. Follow Save the Children on Twitter and Facebook.
