Beneficiaries carry bags of wheat from a warehouse to a staging area outside where the aid, from the Joint Emergency Response Program (JEOP), will be distributed in Hawzen district, in Misraqawi Zone of the Tigray Region, Ethiopia, on February 6, 2019.

When recurrent droughts lead to crop failures in Ethiopia, it can leave families with little or nothing to eat. The Joint Emergency Response Program (JEOP) distributes wheat, yellow split peas and cooking oil to targeted beneficiaries. In 2018 alone, funding from USAID helped CRS and its partners provide emergency food assistance to more than 1.5 million food insecure people, plus another 506,000 people displaced in southwestern Ethiopia due to ongoing security issues.
