The Cooperative Bank of Oromia has donated humanitarian supplies worth 70 million Br to drought-stricken areas of Oromia Regional State. The supplies include food and animal fodder to be distributed to five zones, including East Bale, Borena and Guji. More than half a dozen zones in Oromia, an additional 10 in the Somali Regional State, and areas of the Southern region, are suffering from what the United Nations describes as the "worst drought the country has seen in four decades." Humanitarian organisations estimate that around seven million livelihoods in the regions are in need of live-saving support. Millions more are in a similar predicament in neighbouring Kenya and Somalia as well.
