The United Nations says lack of funding for humanitarian assistance in Ethiopia is a challenge.
The United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) said in a statement on Monday that the declining funding for humanitarian assistance in Ethiopia is a challenge.
In 2020, it collected only 28.9 percent of the country’s $ 1.65 billion humanitarian aid, the bureau said in a statement. He also called on aid agencies to provide the remaining 1.17 billion US dollars to provide comprehensive humanitarian services.
Last June, the government reviewed humanitarian documents with partner organizations, including the United Nations. According to the revised document, 16.5 million people are in need of emergency food and other supplies and $ 1.56 million is needed.
Displacement, epidemics, climate change, and the increasing spread of cholera virus are cited as reasons for the increase in the number of people seeking services in Ethiopia, including recurrent food insecurity. The United Nations says hundreds of thousands of people are at risk of starvation in East Africa.
