A new report released by United Nation Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (UNOCHA) shows that the number of relief food beneficiaries in Ethiopia has increased to 4.5 million in August 2015.
This has come after a mid year review on Humanitarian Requirement-2015 which was just released today on the presence of donors and representatives from Ethiopian government.
The report has also disclosed that the funding requirement for food and non-food items is up by 10.6 pc to 386 million dollars from January’s forecast, of which 158 million dollar is the net mid year requirement.
The report attributed the increased humanitarian requirement in the second half of 2015 to the failed rains and partly to delays in relief food and targeted supplementary feeding response during the first half of the year.
