Ethiopia Drought Prompts Aid Appeal

The United Nations says the worst drought in 30 years in Ethiopia means 400,000 children are suffering from acute malnutrition and more than 10 million people need food aid. It has appealed for a $50 million cash injection to help the country deal with its worst drought in decades, News24 reported. Save the Children, the international non-governmental organization, says the drought in Ethiopia represents as big a potential threat to children’s lives as the war in Syria. “We only have two emergencies in the world that we have categorized as category one. Syria is one and Ethiopia the second. And so we’ve said we need to raise $100 million for this response,” Carolyn Miles, a representative of Save the Children, said. According to Al Jazeera reporting from Ethiopia, the government and  international donors have already put in hundreds of millions of dollars to try and help, but aid agencies say it just is not enough.
