There is no school, so there is hunger. PCPM helping in Ethiopia

A meal at Selam Chora was the only one that most students of this Ethiopian school could count on. There was no food at home. Fear of a pandemic forced the Ethiopian authorities to introduce a state of emergency and close all facilities. When it happened, many Ethiopian families lost their last hope. In addition to the fear of a pandemic, the lack of chance for any earnings, every minute people are more and more terrified of hunger increased by the locust plague, which deprives them of any chance to buy the food.
