Tigray Region In Need of Food

The latest food assessment published on Friday by the World Food Programme (WFP), says a total of 4.6 million people, or 83% of the population of Tigray, are “food insecure”, while two million (nearly 40%) are “severely food insecure”. There are also reports suggesting that the situation has forced some of the nurses and doctors at the biggest hospital in the Tigray region to beg for food to feed themselves.

The Tigray Region in Ethiopia has been engaged in a civil war between the Ethiopian Government and the Tigray People’s Liberation Front a rebel movement which is leading efforts to breakaway from Ethiopia. The crisis in the region has also brought about a food crisis as reported by the World Food Programme.
