Horn of Africa food crisis

The Ethiopian government and its humanitarian partners in the country say nearly 5 million people require emergency food-aid this year, outside the governments own safety net programme. An additional 1.2 million mothers and children under five there will require supplementary feeding. The International Federations Addis Ababa-based operations team is now working with the Ethiopian Red Cross Society to finalize plans for the major food-aid operation it hopes to start next month in Oromiya and Somali regions. The Federation’s Alex Wynter has spent more than two months in the Horn of Africa nations of Djibouti, Ethiopia and Kenya, reporting on the drought-based disaster there.
