Aid to Ethiopia

EthiopiaMade up of 29 North American Jewish organizations, the Jewish Coalition for Aid to Ethiopia collected over $24,000 for its efforts to address the effects of severe food shortages and drought in East Africa during 2000-2001.
While Jewish Coalition activities have been completed, a humanitarian crisis persists in Ethiopia. According to the US Agency for International Development (USAID), over 14 million people are at risk of severe malnutrition in Ethiopia and neighorhing Eritrea. Insufficient rainfall over the last several years has resulted in a full-scale food crisis that many experts agree is worse than the one that occurred in 1984.
