U.S. food assistance for Ethiopia being unloaded in Djibouti. Thanks to the early warning and careful tracking of the progression of El Niño in the Horn of Africa, USAID was able to pre-position some of the relief commodities Ethiopia is now using to meet increased needs caused by El Niño. Through USAID, the United States is providing $128.4 million in emergency food assistance for Ethiopians in 2015. This complements the more than $200 million the Government of Ethiopia has already committed to address emergency food and other humanitarian needs.
