Due to this conflict, many people have already crossed the border searching for food, water and safety. Most of them are in Ethiopia’s refugee camps and their children are malnourished.

The World Bank figures proved that this emergency did not happened overnight as the figures claim that Ethiopia’s population had exceeded to 80 million.

In Canada, the Humanitarian Coalition initiated a crisis request among its people and said that they might be unconscious of the vastness of the crises but they should immediately understand the need of the hour and come forward to help others.
