Following an erratic start to the 2004/05 rainy season, many areas received normal to above normal rains in January, which significantly improved crop growing conditions and in many areas broke the dry spells that had persisted from the end of December till the first ten days of January. Cumulative rains have risen to near normal levels improving soil moisture conditions. Agricultural activities continue throughout the region, and crops are reported to be maturing in some parts (bimodal areas of Tanzania), while elsewhere they are at vegetative to maturity stages.

GENEVA, 26 January 2005 - UNICEF
today appealed for more than $750 million to help millions of children
struggling to survive conflicts and other emergencies in countries around
the world, saying that the tsunami had shown that people care deeply about
children in desperate situations but are often not aware of them.
The number of people in need of food assistance due to the Indian Ocean Tsunami is estimated at 2 million and WFP is seeking USD 256 million from donors to feed them.
Fatalities in Indonesia from the Tsunami are now estimated at more than 160,000 as government authorities add figures for missing people to the total.
In Southern Africa during the hungry season, WFP is monitoring the impact of both drought and floods on food security and vulnerability to food security.
