Responding to Ethiopia's Hunger Crisis - Situation Report #13
More than 1.2 million people have been reached with humanitarian assistance since World Vision's teams started responding to the hunger crisis in southern and eastern Ethiopia.
Still, there's more work to do. World Vision continues to be concerned that:
- 3.6 million children under 5, pregnant women and breastfeeding women are in need of nutrition assistance
- 12.5 million people are in need of emergency food assistance
- 10.5 million people need clean water, hygiene and sanitation support
- 48,131 reported cases of Acute Watery Diarrhea in 2017
To respond, World Vision aims to provide more than one million more people with life-saving and life-changing assistance in the next six months.
Due to the ongoing hunger crisis, World Vision Ethiopia is requesting an additional US $12.7 million to reach people who urgently need assistance to access food, clean water, health care, nutrition, child protection, income generating activities, shelter and education.
