Project Report | Jan 15, 2024
Your donation made a difference.

By Katherine Coe | Individual Giving Officer

As we wrap up this project on GlobalGiving, we wanted to take a moment to give a huge thanks to you for your generous contribution to our humanitarian work in response to the humanitarian situation in Ethiopia.

Due to drought and conflict, 20.1 million people are in need of food assistance, 4.5 million people have been internally displaced, and 4.2 million children under the age of 5 are malnourished.

Your donations helped ActionAid provide immediate humanitarian assistance to the people affected by these intertwining crises. Among other activities, our response included: creating 4,600 nutrition programs, delivering multipurpose cash to 12,128 people, providing sanitation services to 73,600 people, and gender based protection services to 6,500 women and girls.

ActionAid prides ourselves on our human-rights based approach to humanitarian work. This approach allows us to develop long-term working relationships with local partners who have been working in some of the most remote and underserved areas in the world. Through these relationships, we learn about long term and short term solutions that would work to eradicate poverty and inequality in all sorts of political, cultural, and economic contexts. We provide support to develop and implement these solutions as well as work towards shifting power towards communities by conducting research and advocating for policy that will hold governments accountable to delivering basic human rights to every person.

This work would not be possible without partners like you: caring individuals who are willing to give what they can. 

Thank you so much for your generosity and support. We invite you to stay updated with our ongoing humanitarian work by signing up for our newsletter at
