Challenge

Ethiopia is currently hosting almost 83,000 Sudanese, Somali and Eritrean refugees. These refugees have fled their home countries due to conflict or drought, and have turned to neighboring Ethiopia to sustain them until the crises pass. Without assistance, the Ethiopian government will continue to strain under the effort to provide the essential resources to feed these refugees, along with the over one million Ethiopians in need of food assistance.

Solution

WFP seeks to provide refugees with basic monthly food rations, including supplemental provisions for the most vulnerable individuals and school feeding rations for children.

Long-Term Impact

With proper food security, WFP can limit the fatal consequences that regional conflict and natural disaster wreak on the Horn of Africa. This assistance prevents thousands from starving and also mitigates the tumultuous effects of mass migration.
