Millions in Ethiopia urgently need food and water

A massive drought is taking its toll

It’s easy to take fresh water for granted. I do it every day when I turn the tap, knowing clean water will flow into my empty glass. And, yet I can’t forget a recent trip to Ethiopia, which opened my eyes to the value of that life-sustaining elixir, which tens of millions of people in the world struggle every day to collect.

I remember a line up in Ethiopia that snaked through dry, barren farmland as women and children waited patiently for water kiosks to open in areas where supply of the resource has dwindled with the drought. These were the lucky people; they don’t have to walk several kilometres to access fresh water like some of their far-reaching neighbours.

The government of Ethiopia is doing everything possible to remedy the situation, but outside help is needed as the worst drought in half a decade plagues the African nation. It’s a country where more than 80 percent of the population lives in rural areas and are dependent on rain-fed agriculture for their livelihood. It’s hard to fathom, but the health and livelihood of 10-million people is threatened. I’ve talked to friends in Canada who still haven’t heard about the drought, despite the fact that the need for immediate assistance is real. The drought has been impacting lives for months.

Christian Children’s Fund of Canada has distributed wheat, pulses (a legume) and oil to 2,400 beneficiaries and has provided educational materials to support 3,800 students, among other efforts, but we’re working to do more. In fact, the global community is seeking to raise hundreds of millions of dollars to provide urgently needed food support and other emergency response care to families in nine regions of Ethiopia.

Visit ccfcanada.ca/drought-in-ethiopia, or call 1-800-263-5437, ext. 610, to learn more. Your generosity will mean more than you know.
