Ethiopia, humanitarian groups say food aid for 7.8 million to run out
By Aaron Maasho | WARDER, ETHIOPIA
Ethiopia will run out of emergency food aid for 7.8 million people hit by severe drought by the end of this month, the government and humanitarian groups said.

Successive failed rains blamed by meteorologists on fluctuations in ocean temperatures known as the Indian Ocean Dipole (IOD) have created a series of severe back-to-back droughts in Ethiopia and the Horn of Africa region.

In Ethiopia, the number of people now critically short of food is expected to rise by at least two million by next month, according to figures compiled by the government and its humanitarian partners.

Donors, international aid groups and the government say existing food aid for the current 7.8 million will run out as funds are critically short this year with Ethiopia receiving slightly more than half of the $930 million to meet requirements until July.

"We are in a dire situation," John Aylieff, the World Food Programme's representative in Ethiopia, said on Friday during a field trip to Warder in southeast Ethiopia, one of Ethiopia's hardest-hit areas.

"We've got food running out nationally at the end of June. That means the 7.8 million people who are in need of humanitarian food assistance in Ethiopia will see that distribution cut abruptly at the end of June," he added.

"Last year, we spent a lot of money to confront this type of drought. It is very challenging," said Mitiku Kassa, head of Ethiopia's National Disaster Risk Management Commission.

Across the Horn of Africa, close to 17 million people need humanitarian aid due to drought, including 2.6 million in Kenya and 3.2 million in Somalia, according to the U.N.

In the treeless plains littered with makeshift plastic homes in Ethiopia's Warder, bordering Somalia, displaced and destitute pastoralists said their entire herds had been decimated.

"We have had droughts before, but this time we have drought, diarrhoea and disease," said Ardo Yusuf, a 49-year old mother who said her entire livestock had succumbed to illness.

Are we incapable of building a functioning successful state in any country? This is Ethiopia, that has a government and even here we are the poorest and most backward ethnic group. NFD is equally a dry drought-ridden shithole. I genuinely think Allah has cursed us or something. And I don't even believe in that nonsense, but there's got to be a supernatural element to Somali collective stupidity. Nomadism in the 21st century.:snoop:

The Ethiopian government is stealing the aid smart guy. Plus, it is the policy of government to marginalize the Somalis and their region.

You can't blame everything on the xabashis "smart-lady". Are you animals that you have no control over your own destiny? Why is every region run by Somalis an unmitigated disaster? Time to take responsibility.

It's not stupidity because we function perfectly fine on an individual level. There is a psychological phenomenon that occurs within a group of Somalis in which the desire for prosperity fades, aggression rises, and sense is impaired. This leads to dysfunctional decision-making.

Sort of like a nigga moment. A moment where ignorance and qabilism overwhelms the mind of an otherwise logical Faarax causing them to act in an illogical and self-destructive manner. Suugo scientists have yet to uncover what triggers this

I find it very difficult to believe we are the heirs of civilised societies like the Adal and Ajuuran empires as well as the ancient city states like Malao and Opone. Like we killed all the previous inhabitants of Somalia and replaced them with inbred geeljires. No nation has been so blessed and yet so utterly cursed at the same time.:jcoleno:

They always blocked the aid from Somali region. Stop blaming the victims.


A rebel group in Ethiopia's arid Somali region has issued an urgent appeal for humanitarian assistance, accusing the government of blocking aid deliveries.



The Ogaden National Liberation Front (ONLF) insurgent group says people and livestock are dying in Ethiopia's Somali region as drought conditions deteriorate across the Horn of Africa.

An email sent to news organizations says food and water shortages are worse in rebel strongholds because the government has imposed an embargo on the delivery of humanitarian aid.

The email accuses Ethiopia of bullying the United Nations and humanitarian agencies into silence about the severity of the crisis, and accuses international aid donors of ignoring the plight of the Ogaden people. The message says government forces are preventing UN staff from going beyond regional centers to verify aid deliveries.

People are forgetting that the Ogden region has been deliberately starved of any investment by the Ethiopian government. its simply treated as a buffer zone against any future Somali aggression. You don't invest in a people who would potentially see you as occupiers even if it would placate them.

If they invested in the Somali regions neigbouring somali clans would run their to get jobs and become Ethiopian citzens rather than our open safari of a country ( not including somaliland we are zoo since we have institutions)
 
So ogaden is a failure because of xabashis? What about Somaliland? Somalia? NFD? Djibouti? Are they all being sabotaged by xabashis. Like I said, if you are at the mercy of xabashis, it's your fault not their's.

That's plausible to an extent, but why are most Somalis in Somali galbeed content with the corrupt leadership? There's been a wave of protests occuring in other regions but none in S galbeed...
