Addis Ababa, Ethiopia

More than 10 million people across Ethiopia, Somalia and Kenya are facing a catastrophic humanitarian crisis as extreme weather events are continuously causing both drought and floods.

An upsurge of locusts has also hit the region’s already fragile food security. And today, with the spread of the novel coronavirus, lockdown and unemployment – families cannot afford the most basic essentials to their survival.
