Up to 8.5 million people annually have needed emergency food aid in recent years, with up to 3.6 million moderately malnourished children suffering from severe malnutrition this year. Like many developing countries, Ethiopia suffers severe droughts which routinely destroy the crops and livestock many poor families depend on to survive.

Working alongside our sister charities, CAFOD and Trócaire, we're providing 'cash for work' so extremely poor families can support themselves and learn vocational skills. We’re also helping drought-striken communities to dig and maintain wells and reservoirs. Our work also includes setting up savings and loans groups, and providing training to help vulnerable communities to set up new businesses.
