Drought in Ethiopia: Help against famine!

Ethiopia is experiencing its worst drought in 40 years. Since the beginning of 2020, there has been little or no rainfall in Borena in southern Ethiopia. Hoping for water and fodder for their livestock, many pastoralist families have come from the vastness of the savannah to villages and small towns. But many families have already lost their animals completely. Therefore, emergency aid is urgently needed. Menschen für Menschen distributes basic foodstuffs to 4539 people affected by hunger. The relief supplies will be delivered in monthly distribution campaigns up to the end of 2022. You can find more information here.


Graphic food packageOur emergency aid packages per person and month:

  • 15 kilograms of maize flour
  • 0.5 litres of cooking oil
  • Washing soaps
  • Water canister (one-time)
  • Tent sheets (one-time)

With 60 Swiss francs you can ensure the survival of three people for one month of drought.

Please add the term “Drought 2022” in the comment so that we can allocate this accordingly.
