This Day in History: 1984-10-25
(October 25, 1984)
The Red Cross and Oxfam have reported that ten million Ethiopians are at risk of hunger, and Christian Aid and the Red Cross believe the same. The European Economic Community makes a donation of £1.8 million. Around 1 million Ethiopians died of malnutrition in 1984 because relief was inadequate or arrived too late in the situation.
