An estimated 23 million people in Ethiopia are in need of humanitarian assistance across the country due to the combined consequences of conflict, drought, epidemics, food insecurity, pest outbreaks, and population movement. Through this Emergency Appeal, the IFRC is supporting the Ethiopian Red Cross Society, Sudanese Red Crescent Society and Djibouti Red Crescent Society to scale up their live-saving humanitarian response and preparedness for future needs.
