The humanitarian crisis in Ethiopia in numbers:
- Nearly 8 million people, including over 4 million children, are food insecure. (UNICEF, 2019)
- Nearly 400,000 of those children currently suffer from severe acute malnutrition. (UNICEF, 2019)
The people of Ethiopia are regularly affected by drought, and Islamic Relief USA aims to consistently respond to the needs of the most vulnerable by providing emergency aid, like food packages and water. In addition, IRUSA has also recently carried out projects focused on areas of essential need in the country, including child protection, Malaria treatment, education, food security, and livelihood development.
