The Welthungerhilfe is expanding their aid measures in Ethiopia. This week we will start distributing food aid in the Afar region in eastern Ethiopia to 13,500 adults and 5,000 children, as well as nutritional supplements to 2,000 both pregnant women and those who are breastfeeding. There are more than 200,000 refugees from Somalia in Ethiopia, but the conditions for the 4.8 million Ethiopians is also critical and continues to grow worse.
