Dear Sir/Madam,

I am writing to bring to your attention the severe drought that is currently affecting the Borena zone of Ethiopia, leading to a humanitarian crisis with many people and livestock facing severe food and water shortages.

The drought has resulted in the death of hundreds of thousands of cattle and severe malnutrition among thousands of people in the affected areas. The situation has been exacerbated by ongoing conflicts and displacement, making it difficult for affected populations to access essential services and humanitarian assistance.

As an international community, we cannot ignore the plight of the people in the Borena zone. It is critical that we come together to provide support and resources to those in need. We are calling on international organizations like the United Nations, World Health Organization, International Media organizations, World Food Program, and other humanitarian organizations to provide urgent assistance to those affected by the drought.

We urge you to take swift action to address the immediate needs of the affected populations, including the provision of food, water, and healthcare services. We also call on you to support long-term solutions that promote sustainable development and build resilience to future droughts.

We believe that the international community has a responsibility to support those who are most vulnerable, especially during times of crisis. We ask that you take immediate action to help alleviate the suffering of the people in the Borena zone of Ethiopia.

Those of you who wish to donate online to help provide relief for victims of drought in Borana, here is a link organized by Habtamu M Abdi.

Thank you for your attention to this urgent matter.
