Emergency aid locust plague

The Eli Daar project region in Afar is affected by one of the worst desert locust invasions in the last 25 years. More and more people are losing their livelihoods and suffering from hunger. The locust swarms not only lead to crop losses, but also to the large-scale destruction of pasture land. Together with our partners, we are helping to mitigate the effects of the drought and establish food security for those affected


Together with partner organization APDA, the project aims to mitigate the impact of drought and locust invasion on the food security of families in Eli Daar. To ensure the survival of livestock, 2,916 households are provided with alfalfa hay. In addition, families will receive veterinary medicines and veterinarians will conduct six 15-day treatment campaigns. Beneficiary households have a maximum of 15 goats to ensure their survival. The hay is also expected to increase milk production by about 10 percent.
The provision of animal feed and medical treatment is expected to protect the lives of the herds and thus the livelihoods of more than 2,900 households and about 35,000 animals.


Thank you so much for your engagement!


Yours Michael tuerk
