Tigray – The World Food Programme says:
Over 400,000 people are projected to be suffering from catastrophic levels of hunger, and around 4 million people – 70 percent of the population – have high levels of acute food insecurity.
They remind us that famine is preventable and the power to avert it is in the hands of all parties concerned.
They are calling for:
- All parties to agree to a ceasefire so the humanitarian response can be rapidly scaled up and all routes can be used urgently to reach those most in need.
- USD 176 million to continue to scale up the response in Tigray.
The International Community should not close its ears.
