Coping with drought in Ethiopia's Somali region
In the south eastern part of Ethiopia, bordering the country of Somalia, lies Ethiopia's Somali region which is home to over 4 million people.
There is extra pressure on existing water supplies as many inhabitants have been forced to seek out water holes for household needs...
The few crops grown have failed and with livestock weakening, more than a million people in this region will require food assistance to get them through the coming months.
With the help of donations from KWF in Germany, WFP has been able to reach quickly to this emergency situation.
By working together with the local government and residents, WFP ensures that the most needy communities are targeted.
The failure of seasonal rains has caused a drought in the Somali region of Ethiopia.
