The Green Hunger Aftermath 2011 (assignment NGO)

Date of realization: 2011

Country: Ethiopia

The region of SNNPR (Southern Nations, Nationalities and People’s Region) is one of the most densely populated areas of Ethiopia. Between 2008 and 2009, it was affected by a severe famine caused by drought. At that time, many humanitarian organizations gave their contribute for this emergency.
The following return of rains made the vegetation turn green and lush again - hence the name “Green Hunger” - but this was not sufficient to generate crops and sustain the population. The World Food Program (WFP) says it is feeding 3.7 million people with emergency food assistance in Ethiopia, mostly affected by drought, with up to 15 million people affected in the Horn of Africa as a whole.
More than a year after the intervention of NGOs, the situation remains very serious: the inhabitants are undernourished, water is scarce and not drinkable, diseases and infections spread easily.
