Dr. Solomon Ali :


According to the current drought situation in Ethiopia, in 2017, 5.6 million people require emergency food assistance. Out of these, 2.7 million children under five, pregnant and lactating mothers are in need of supplementary food. Moreover, 9.1 million people are in need of safe drinking water; while 1.9 million households will need livestock support.

Ethiopian Red Cross Society has therefore planned to distribute safe drinking water and continue the provision of supplementary food and animal feed to 318,325 people in the coming 10 months with the cost of over birr 319 million (over 12 million USD) in Somali, Oromia, SNNP, Afar Tigray and Amhara regions where lack of pasture and water will aggravate the food insecurity situation of millions of citizens.

Our National Society wholeheartedly thank you for your unreserved support last year that enabled us to reach over 500,000 beneficiaries.

We call up on you, again this year, to extend your humanitarian helping hands to save the lives and livelihoods of millions of vulnerable people we are committed to reach.

Currently we are water trucking in Moyale and Kindo Koisha of Wolaita Zone to supply clean water and providing supplementary food in Somali, Oromia, Tigray, Amhara and Afar regions with the cost of birr 8.7 million. Our cash requirement to support 318,325 vulnerable people still has a big gap. It needs our concerted effort to fill the gap.
