Critical gaps exist in the relief supplies needed for the 11 million people affected by drought in Ethiopia. Despite encouraging responses from donors over the past few months, Oxfam remains concerned that approximately half of the food required for 2003 still needs to be pledged and delivered to avert a crisis.
