About Alarming Food Crisis In Ethiopia

Sanghi's picture

Ethiopia Food Crisis:

The escalating rise in global food prices, combined with prolonged drought, has left 4.6 million people in the poorest areas of Ethiopia coping with malnutrition and all the health problems associated with it. Official statistics say 75,000 children are already severely malnourished and could die without immediate treatment. We estimate there are around 759,000 under-fives in the hardest-hit areas who are especially vulnerable to the affects of malnutrition and need our support before they get to this stage. Save the Children has set up community-based health centres for malnourished children, where we provide high-energy foods containing all the essential nutrients children need to recover.
