RICHMOND, VA – A severe shortfall in aid funding is putting thousands of children at risk in Ethiopia as the country deals with its worst drought emergency in decades. The drought and resulting food shortage are expected to continue well into 2016. ChildFund International is in urgent need of millions of dollars in additional funding to provide emergency food rations for 300,000 people over the next six months.
