Ethiopia drought: A mother's plea

August 2011: Meet Meselech - a 30-year-old mother struggling to feed her 5 malnourished children in drought-hit southern Ethiopia.

She is now so weak that she can’t produce enough milk for her 5-month-old baby.

“It will be at least 2 months until we can harvest our crops, so we need assistance now,” she says.

Emergency aid
