ETHIOPIA — Samaritan’s Purse is helping to feed hungry children in northern Ethiopia who are at risk of acute malnutrition, due to food shortages caused by months of internal conflict.
David Mbuguah, Samaritan’s Purse:
This is Samaritan’s Purse team. We are here in northern Ethiopia in the Tigray region. Today, we are here to serve the children under five. And we will be serving them with supplemental food because the conflict in this area have led to food being disrupted to come to this area. And that have caused high levels of malnutrition. As Samaritan’s Purse, we are here to show love to these children, to the community here, to tell them that God loves them and they are not forgotten.
