Conflict in Tigray

The conflict in Tigray, which has been ongoing since November 2020, has so far forced 730,000 people to flee their home villages. According to the United Nations, eight million people in the northern Ethiopian region are in need of humanitarian aid, or 80 percent of the population. We are providing aid with our local partner.

The need is great in Tigray: The conflict has recently spread, triggering a humanitarian crisis that, according to UN estimates, has left 400,000 people in Tigray starving. Many people are therefore seeking refuge in the neighboring regions of Afar and Amhara, where the humanitarian need is also great. Near the border with Tigray, 81 percent of the population suffers from malnutrition, according to a government survey. In Tigray, Amhara and Afar, nutritional aid is therefore the top priority for the majority of people affected by the conflict.

How we help

  • Those in particular need receive cash assistance to get through the greatest hardship.
  • We distribute seeds, agricultural equipment and livestock such as goats so that people can start their own production and build a livelihood.
  • To alleviate acute hunger, we distribute food to 4,000 people with our partners.
  • We are improving hygiene on site and building 20 latrines with hand-washing stations for the communities.
  • To improve local food production in the medium term, we are also training ten agricultural community workers. Each community worker then advises a certain number of farmers on ways to increase crop yields.

You can support this measures with your donation.

Thank's a lot, yours
