Ethiopia

Drought has pushed 7.8 million people in Ethiopia into crisis. 

Oxfam has provided clean water to half a million people and 156 institutions like schools and health facilities. In the Somali region, Oxfam has responded to a serious outbreak of acute watery diarrhea disease by teaching more than 10,000 people how to prevent such dangerous maladies. We are working to distribute cash to nearly 26,000 households. 


We need to scale up those efforts, and we urgently need your support to help save lives.

As drought grips Ethiopia, a mother waits to name her newborn

“We have never seen two years without rain in our lifetime,” says a man named Mohammed, who used to have 400 sheep and goats and now has only 15 left. “We are in a dangerous situation—even people. If the drought continues like this, people will die.”
