Already struggling after two years of low rainfall, a volcanic eruption in July 2011 was a huge blow to people in the Afar Region of Ethiopia, with widespread loss of livelihoods, homes, and health. 48,000 people were affected, and a further 167,153 were left vulnerable, by severe food insecurity in the aftermath of the eruption.

Islamic Relief provided 3,000 of the worst affected displaced people with Emergency Supplies and life-saving nutritious food such as haricot beans, wheat, fortified food, and high-energy biscuits. Mother-of-two, Hawa Mussa Ahmed, described her situation following the eruption as “very hard. It is like going from living to non-living. I couldn’t call this ‘life’.”

Nevertheless, although Islamic Relief was able to address just one of the many problems Hawa faced, she was grateful for the variety of food provided. While the local government supplied only carbohydrate-rich wheat, this was creating health problems for her family: “My father gets a sick stomach if he only eats wheat. The food from Islamic Relief is easy to prepare and consume, and has no side-effects on our digestion.”
