Drought conditions have taken a massive grip on much of the Afar region. The impact of this prolonged drought is compounded by recent political instability that has already left over a million people facing widespread hunger and malnutrition. Throughout the conflict, the destruction of infrastructure has been widespread, in turn preventing adequate drought responses.
In response to the worsening food crisis Ethiopiaid is providing additional support to our partner, the Afar Pastoralist Development Association (APDA).
Together we’re making a difference but we need your help more than ever.
“A group of men explained to me how they shared to purchase a kilogram of sugar, boiled up tea each morning, each drinking a cup and convincing themselves they were thereby fed for the day so that the children and women could eat something”
