El Nino and Food Crisis in Ethiopia

In Laudato Si’, Pope Francis speaks repeatedly about the devastating effects of climate change and its impact on those who are most vulnerable, those who live in poverty. In a short video, Catholic Relief Services directs our attention to Ethiopians who are suffering from El Nino’s effects. You may prefer to read this one-page briefing on human need in Ethiopia. Tragically, other countries in Sub-Saharan Africa are experiencing the same plight. Support for humanitarian organizations on the front lines is urgently needed.
