The food security and malnutrition rates in conflict-affected northern Ethiopia continue to be extremely concerning.
Admissions of severely malnourished children to therapeutic feeding programs have increased by more than 30 percent in March and by 28 percent in April, compared to the average of the last five years. Nutrition partners are providing support to malnourished children as well as pregnant and lactating women with available resources, but additional nutrition supplies are urgently needed to address the vast needs.
World Vision has been responding to the humanitarian needs of the people in northern Ethiopia and has reached more than 3.3 million people, 1.3 million of whom are children, through interventions in Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene (WASH), food assistance, health, nutrition, protection, shelter, and cash distribution.
