UN agency sends aid to Ethiopian drought victims. It is estimated that the lives of 126,000 children in central Ethiopia are in danger due to a lack of food. In response, the United Nations Humanitarian Response Fund (HRF) has allocated US$7.2 million for the purchase of therapeutic foods and medicines.
This is in addition to the US$5.5 million already supplied for other drought-related projects. The primary donors for this UN HRF aid were Norway, the Netherlands, and the United Kingdom. We convey our sincere gratitude to the United Nation’s HRF and participating countries and Heaven’s blessings for your compassionate actions. We are heartened to see nations working together to provide support to those whose lives are being affected by climate change related conditions.
