Ethiopian gov’t says humanitarian aid reaches over 4 mln people

By Xinhua

ADDIS ABABA, Aug. 30 (Xinhua) — The Ethiopian government on Wednesday said it has delivered humanitarian aid to over 4.1 million people during the ongoing rainy season across the country. The Ethiopian National Disaster Risk Management Commission has announced that humanitarian assistance had been delivered to the people affected by disasters in various parts of the East African country in this year’s rainy season from mid-June to mid-September. Humanitarian operations are ongoing in a more strengthened manner to reach people in need in different parts of Ethiopia, state-affiliated Fana Broadcasting Corporate quoted NDRMC Commissioner Shiferaw Teklemariam as saying. He said preparations are underway to dispatch additional assistance to regions in need of humanitarian support in the coming weeks. In June, the UN World Food Program decided to suspend its food aid program in Ethiopia, citing large-scale aid misappropriation. The UN agency estimated that more than 20 million people in Ethiopia are now in urgent need of humanitarian food aid. Enditem
