Summary

The humanitarian and hunger crisis in Ethiopia has worsened. Food insecurity, conflict and violence, climate change, and economic turmoil have pushed more than five million people - almost 90% of the population -into a state of emergency. ActionAid will provide food, shelter, and medical support to the most vulnerable and marginalized families in the country.

Challenge

Although some communities have received humanitarian assistance, much more needs to be done to support those displaced by these intersecting crises, especially those in inaccessible areas. We know that in these conflicts, women and children are the most vulnerable. In their displacement, they also face increased exposure to cholera, Covid-19, and other health risks.

Solution

Thanks to our local partnerships, ActionAid is working on the ground in Southern Tigray, Raya Azebo, and Chercher, to support farmers and women and children who have been impacted by the ongoing conflict. We are scaling up our response to include food, shelter, medicine, and other essential items.

Long-Term Impact

Tinebeb Berhane, who directs ActionAid's programs in Ethiopia, shared with us: "Women leaders trained as emergency responders by ActionAid are running protection programs to help combat the rising violence and provide safe spaces for women and girls. But there is an urgent need to scale up our response to support more women and girls, and communities facing a deepening hunger and humanitarian crisis." ActionAid's support provides both short-term crisis response and long-term resilience building.
