Thank you so much for your support of this project. I’m writing to share some updates from ActionAid’s emergency responses. We appreciate you taking the time to learn about and support our work.

Recent reports have determined that “one person is likely dying of hunger every 48 seconds in drought-ravaged Ethiopia, Kenya and Somalia”, where nearly half a million people across parts of Somalia and Ethiopia are facing famine-like conditions. In an already unstable situation, climate change, internal conflicts, and the war on Ukraine’s impact on food supply have converged to worsen this crisis facing Ethiopia and the greater Horn of Africa. As it currently stands, appeals to respond to the drought and situation in Ethiopia remain underfunded. Please consider sharing this project with your network, so we can continue to support communities on the frontlines of the climate and food crisis in Ethiopia.

ActionAid is on the ground providing life-saving relief and support to thousands in affected communities, and we are continuing to work tirelessly to support these communities and increase resilience to future crises. ActionAid emphasizes the importance of women’s leadership in emergencies because we know that women have a strong understanding of their local contexts, inclusive of the needs and realities of the women and girls in their communities. Our work has also taught us that women and girls face an increased risk of gender-based violence, trafficking, and exploitation during these kinds of emergencies, which is why we’ve provided training for local women to lead the response and created safe spaces for survivors of gender-based violence.

Now more than ever, your commitment to human rights makes a difference. Thank you for your support and solidarity.

The climate crisis is fueling one of the worst droughts on record across the Ethiopia and the Horn of Africa, and now communities are feeling the effects of the war on Ukraine. Severe drought, chronic water shortages, and rising food and energy prices are pushing upwards of 14 million people to the brink of survival. Global food prices had already reached record highs when the war on Ukraine began, due to the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, climate disasters, and rising energy costs.

We are working with local partners to continue to provide life-saving relief and support to build resilience to these intersecting issues. . Please consider sharing this project with your network, so we can continue to support communities on the frontlines of  the climate crisis in Ethiopia.

Now more than ever, your commitment to Human Rights makes a difference. Thank you for your support and solidarity.

Updates as of December 2021

Conflict in the Tigray, Afar, and Amhara regions of Ethiopia continues to intensify and the situation is becoming more complex. A state of emergency has been declared at the federal level and regionally, travel restrictions have been imposed. As a result, the need for humanitarian assistance is deepening.

Thanks to your support, ActionAid has implemented an emergency response plan. To date, we have delivered food to more than 12,000 people (including 8,000 women) and non-food items, such as hygiene kits, to 8,000 people (6,700 women). We have also provided protection and multipurpose cash support to 5,200 people (4,200 women).

Women have been front and center in ActionAid’s efforts – playing leading roles in the targeting, verification, and selection of people to reach. In Afar, our response was led by women and youth-led organizations, who have a grassroots presence in the community; in the Amhara region, by a long-term local civil society partner. As always, ActionAid’s work is locally led, with women’s rights prioritized.

This response is only possible thanks to the generosity of supporters like you. Thank you for being part of the ActionAid team!
