Ethiopia is a very poor country. I talked with two Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) workers from the UK who are studying hunger in Ethiopia. They say Ethiopia has one of the highest "wasting" rates in Africa (10%), which they say is very high. Wasting is the technical term for low body weight relative to height....perhaps obviously a precursor to starvation. These photos were taken at a market in the north of Ethiopia. There is a significant need for healthcare services in Ethiopia.
