The Ministry of Foreign Affairs, in close coordination with the Italian Agency for Development Cooperation, has allocated a 500,000-euro financial contribution to tackle the humanitarian crisis in the regions of Gedeo and West Guji, in Ethiopia. The contribution will mainly be used to provide emergency shelters as well as relief material and support to mobile clinics.
Alfano: “Political, social and environmental problems in the Horn of Africa cause large migration flows. In Ethiopia, living conditions are made extremely difficult by the El Niño climate phenomenon, obliging the Country to tackle one of the most serious climate shocks in its history.

Rome, 28 April 2000 - On 27 April, the first two flights of an airlift carrying one hundred tons of food supplements for infants, amounting to a value of five hundred million liras, reached Godé, the capital of the Ethiopian region worst affected by the drought.
These diet supplements, a donation from the Italian co-operation department and which include maize, soya, sugar, vitamins and minerals, are especially important for children, mothers and the elderly, in an area where nutrition levels are very low.
