27 Apr 2000 description

The magnitude of drought and famine in the whole of Ethiopia, particularly in the south and southeast, is becoming severe. What is reported by the BBC is the area called Gode (Somali region) and Borena (Oromiya). A number of children and elderly are reported to be dying everyday. And so are their livestock. The government is complaining that, unfortunately, donors have not responded quickly to the pledge made by the government seven months ago.
