Mai Aini, 8 December 2015 – "Have you ever counselled someone who later disappeared on the way to Europe?" Sebhat* gazes off, detaching himself from the reality in Mai Aini camp. Only his eyes tell a story of pain and loss.

For reporters and government officials, heads of state and humanitarian agencies, the record numbers of refugee lives lost at sea or in the Sahara in recent years are indigestible statistics devoid of emotion. For 58-year-old Sebhat, they are faces, memories, loved ones and compatriots.

Major food security Emergency expected through 2016

Key Messages

  • The ongoing El Niño contributing to the worst drought in more than 50 years in Ethiopia has led to well below average Meher harvests in most eastern cropping areas. It has also contributed to massive livestock deaths, poor livestock body conditions and very low livestock production in Afar and northern parts of Somali Region. Between January and March 2016, large populations in the east of the country will experience very significant food consumption gaps.
