The Crisis We Face
Dambi Dida is a Pastoralist in Ethiopia and a SCIAF project participant. For him and those in his community, there is no escape from the devastating impact of drought.
“Drought is worse than war.”
“With war you can escape, but not so with drought. I used to pray to God and would wait to see what happened, there was nothing else I could do. My neighbours, good pastoralists and heard workers, killed themselves due to the stress of drought, leaving their families to fend for themselves. I just said to myself ‘we have to keep going’.”
