I am pleased to announce that Australia will provide emergency food aid for the Horn of Africa, where an estimated 12.4 million people are at risk of starvation due to a severe drought.

The food aid will be distributed through the World Food Program which has a long record of effective aid delivery in the region. The World Food Program's relief efforts are expected to focus on Ethiopia, the worst affected country. Recent reports indicate that an estimated 8 million people are facing starvation in Ethiopia.
