Ethiopia appeal documents
In Ethiopia, some 400 000 children face severe malnutrition in 2016, and another 1 million children and 700 000 pregnant or breastfeeding women face moderate malnutrition. More than 8 million people are expected to need food assistance next year. Those who are malnourished are more likely to get sick during disease outbreaks; and when they get sick more likely to die. Urgent action is needed to prevent escalation of this crisis.
