The Catholic aid agency CAFOD fears that Ethiopia and Eritrea could be running out of time to save millions from the effects of a severe food crisis. Today the US government's Famine Early Warning System said that food in the region could run out within a month. Up to 11 million people in Ethiopia and two million in Eritrea face hunger after one of the worst ever droughts.
Ethiopia and Eritrea are facing severe food shortages that could affect over 15 million people across the two countries.
CAFOD has responded to emergency needs in the Horn of Africa this year with grants totalling over £500,000 and numerous assessment and monitoring visits both by Programme staff and the Emergency Support Section.
CAFOD says hundreds of thousands of Eritreans are desperately in need of emergency aid. Ethiopia and Eritrea have been engaged in a full-blown and bloody war. A new offensive by Ethiopia has seen it occupy large swaths of Eritrean Land.
