One-in-five Ethiopian babies will die before reaching age 5.
Some websites say it is one-in-11.
Either way – what a brutal statistic.
According to the National Institute of Health, Ethiopians have large families that suffer from a lack of basic needs such as food, clothing, housing, and health care and education.
Too many children – not enough resources. It’s no wonder so many Ethiopian children die so early – while others are orphaned.
