Drought and hunger in Ethiopia: Oxfam is there

Drought in Ethiopia: Oxfam is there

Two seasons of failed rain and drier than normal conditions have fuelled a devastating drought in Ethiopia, leaving 7.8 million people dangerously hungry.
 
Most water sources have been dried up and the lack of pasture has starved thousands of animals to death. People’s means to earn a living have been eroded, leaving them dependent on humanitarian aid to survive.
 
Oxfam is there, providing affected families in the southern Somali region with clean safe water and cash assistance to help them buy food and other vital items.
