Britain gives Ethiopia $6.4 mln for child nutrition

Britain will give Ethiopia $6.4 million to feed and treat 80,000 severely malnourished children across the huge Horn of Africa country, the U.N children’s agency UNICEF said on Monday.

The agency says it still needs another $14.7 million for emergency feeding Ethiopia this year.

The Ethiopian government says 6.2 million people will need emergency food this year. Another 7 million Ethiopians are on a long-running food-for-work scheme.
