Emergency aid Ethiopia – The great starvation in front of the worlds’ eyes!

UNESCO Special ambassador Dr. h.c. Ute-Henriette Ohoven: “Anyone who has ever seen a child die of starvation in their arms, just because all help came too late or there were not enough provisions on site, will never let go of this image and the nightmares!”

As in every conflict, the poorest of the poor are the ones who suffer, without even knowing why war is taking place. According to the latest reports from the UN’s World Food Programme (WFP) on 26 November 2021, 9.4 million people in northern Ethiopia are now dependent on food aid and more than 400.000 people are at acute risk of starvation.

The thing with the egg … and the fight against malnutrition

In addition to very valuable protein, the egg also contains unsaturated fatty acids and minerals such as sodium, kalium, calcium, magnesium, manganese, iron, copper, zinc, phosphorus, selenium, and sulfur. The egg also contains vitamins A, D, E, K, B2 and B6, nicotinamide, pantothenic acid, and folic acid. One egg covers approximately 35% of a person’s daily vitamin B12 needs and in a cooked egg, Biotin, also known as vitamin B7, provides for healthy hair, skin, nerve cells, and metabolism.
