How to Help Those Affected by the Ethiopia Famine
As the effects of war take hold in the Tigray region and Covid-19 takes hold, vast swathes of Ethiopia are also at great risk of famine. Climate change has brought excessive rainfall which has contributed to the uncontrollable breeding of locusts. The invasive species decimate any and all crops in their path, creating widespread food shortages across the country. At UK Islamic Mission, we are determined to help Ethiopians through this dark time and will not stand by as millions of children, men and women face impending famine.
Whilst some areas of Ethiopia have seen extreme rainfall, others are facing intense droughts and access to clean, safe drinking water has diminished greatly. In order to tackle the Ethiopia water crisis, UKIM has a team on the ground who are desperately rallying to provide people in need with access to clean and life-saving water.
Donating to our East Africa appeal will help alleviate the suffering of millions of people across Ethiopia and relieve the pressure on those facing food and water insecurity.
