International have issued a stark about a looming humanitarian in Ethiopia. The North African country has been hit by its drought for 50 years. It is widely expected that emergency food aid for 10 million Ethiopians will run out more funds can be found. John Graham, the of the charity Save the Children in Ethiopia, said: "The international community has just three weeks to provide $245 million in food aid to help prevent a catastrophic escalation in severe malnutrition ." He added that: "If these emergency funds do not arrive in time, there is no question that there will be a critical fracture in the food aid supply ."

Ethiopia is Africa’s second most country. It is no to natural disasters of this kind. Famine killed over one million Ethiopians in 1984. The latest drought was brought on by the El Nino phenomenon, which has caused drought and across much of Africa. Ethiopia is one of the countries hit. Charities say that over 400,000 Ethiopian children under the age of five will suffer from malnutrition this year. In addition, 1.7 million under-fives, women and breast-feeding mothers will need for malnutrition. Mr Graham warned that, "the window for action is closing" as it can take four months to buy food aid and transport it into the country.
