Only 8 weeks after the inauguration of the Humanitarian Emergency All-Out Response Team (HEART), Ethiopia was affected by the worst drought in 50 years. This catastrophe poses an urgent threat to millions of mothers and children in the region. The number of Ethiopians in critical need of food assistance has skyrocketed from 3 to 10 million in just one year.
