World Vision continues saving lives of thousands of internally displaced people

Since the onset of IDPs crisis in Gedeo zone of the South Nations, Nationalities, and Peoples Region and Guji Oromos in Oromia Regions in April 2018 WVE has been responding through WASH, Livelihoods and Food Security, Health and Nutrition, Education and Protection in order to save lives and ensure subsequent recovery of IDPs and returnees.

WV Ethiopia intervenes in six health centers in Kochere and Gedeb districts as part of the multi-sectoral lifesaving response reaching 46,800 beneficiaries. The response is meant to address the heath, nutrition, and WASH needs of children, pregnant and breast feeding mothers of IDPs, returnees, and host communities.

Ethiopia is one of the fastest growing economies of the world, with annual growth of 10% on average for the last 11 consecutive years. The current population is estimated at over 100 million; more than half of whom are youth.

Despite the current economic advances, recurrent drought with erratic annual rainfall, traditional ways of farming and unstable political and economic conditions remain a challenge for many families. Still today, nearly 36 million children in Ethiopia are poor and lack access to basic social services.

In Ethiopia, World Vision works together and alongside the governmental and non-governmental actors in an effort to improve the well-being of the most vulnerable children and their families to ensure all children have the opportunity to thrive.
