Drought in Ethiopia: Help against famine!

East Africa is experiencing its worst drought in 40 years. In many communities in Borena, in the very south of Ethiopia, there has been hardly any rain for two years. 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. For 4539 people, the foundation Menschen für Menschen is therefore organising the distribution of emergency aid in the disaster area. The relief supplies will be delivered in monthly distribution campaigns between July and September 2022. You can find more information here.
