Hundreds and thousands of Ethiopians severly affected by drought are now receiving emergency food supplies provided by the UN/FAO World Food Programme (WFP) and other donors like the EEC, the Federal Republic of Germany, France, Italy, Canada and Australia. Emergency food, mainly from in-country stocks, is being rushed to the northern regions of Eritrea, Tigre, Wollo and Begemder. The people of these regions, mostly farmers, lost most of their cattle because of late rains last year. They abandoned theirfar-away hamlets to gather in shelter centres which are manned by the country's Relief and Rehabilitation Commission (RRC). WFP's current commitment of emergency food for the drought stands at 15,000 tons of cereals and 120 tons of dried milk powder. The total value of these commodities is US$3.9 million. The RRC estimates that 3.2 million peopole are affected by drought in Ethiopia's northern regions.
