Thank you for your support of Merlin's work in East Africa. As you will read although numbers have dropped there is still a huge need. If you can give another gift, Merlin teams and the families we care for would be very grateful.
Below is an Update on our work for the week commencing Jan 20, 2012
The revised Humanitarian Requirements Document (HRD) launched by UN’s OCHA ( Co-ordination of Humanitarian Affairs) on January 19, 2012 calls for an additional US$ 168.7 million in humanitarian funding to meet food and non-food needs in Ethiopia for some 3.2 million people between January and June 2012. According to the HRD, Ethiopia needs 403 tons of emergency food aid.
In the past the number of people in need of aid topped 4.5 million, the reduction of 1.3million is due to a coordinated effort by all the local, national and international humanitarian organizations.
