The ongoing weather phenomenon with an increased in variability, making it difficult to predict its devastating impact - severe drought in East African countries lead millions of people to emergency food aid, shortage of water and an adverse effect on the education system. Ethiopia, more than 80% of the population live in rural areas and rely on rain-fed agriculture for their livelihood, continues to experience a potentially record-breaking El Niño induced global climate change - the nation's worst drought in 30 years. The drought increases the risk of water-related disease outbreaks, particularly acute & moderate malnutrition, diarrhea, malaria, trachoma and scabies especially among children under 5, according to the UNOCHA. Around 10.2 million people of which 60% - children and lactating women are still in need of emergency humanitarian assistance in an expense of El Niño pressed drought in Amhara, Oromia, Afar, Tigray, Somali and SNNP regional state so far.
