UK donates £90 million for humanitarian support to save lives in Ethiopia and Somalia. BRITISH INTL DEVELOPMENT SECRETARY, PRITI PATEL          "This health centre shows exactly why UK Aid is making a difference here in Ethiopia. It is both saving lives and changing lives. We are seeing the continuity of care here from babies that are being immunised to pregnant mothers in particular who are having a top up in terms of malnutrition but also kids that come here who are so undernourished, who are simply malnourished because of the drought and the famine that is taking place. And this is a system that shows the World Food Programme, UNICEF, Save the Children and all our aid partners though UK Aid coming together to provide that live saving intervention on health and food that is making an enormous difference to hundreds of thousands of children and mothers in Ethiopia here."
