Challenge

The rural communities in of Tigray have lost their means of income, livestock, grain, houses and / or shops as these were looted or destroyed due to the Tigray Crisis. One million internally displaced people are in Shire, staying in makeshift buildings. They will eventually return home, but looting has stripped them of any means of suppoort. They have nothing...

Solution

Abraham's Oasis (AO) is an expert in establishing Income Generation Activities(IGA), having provided this activity accross the Zone for ten years. Now many have lost everything and AO will help them re-start and re-build their lives. The local governent has asked AO to also assist a hard hit community in Shire and 1000 people have been given into their care for emergency food supplies. Already started.

Long-Term Impact

Keep 1000 people alive until they can find strength and hope to restart their lives and to help 200 vulnerable family units establish and run small businesses enabling them to regain their diginity and livelihood after these unfortunate events.
