Ethiopia Faces Food Shortage

Despite recording double-digit economic growth in recent years, Ethiopia is in serious need of food aid. Observers consider the current food crisis to be the worst in 30 years, similar to the famine of 1984-85, which led to thousands of deaths, NewsNow reported. According to a report by the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, the number of relief food beneficiaries in Ethiopia has increased to 4.5 million people this month. Government officials estimate that 10.1 million people will face critical food shortages in 2016. The figure includes 5.75 million Ethiopian children.
