The Tigray refugees went to Sudan to escape from the conflict in their homes. Now that there is a peace Treaty between the Federal and the Tigray regional governments the hope was for the refugees to return home. Until no internally or externally displaced person has resettled in their former homes. Western and Southern Tigray are still occupied. The Federal Government is responsible to clear these areas according to the Pretoria agreement.
However, the problem in Sudan is complicated by the civil war. Sudanese civilians themselves are leaving the country and we are hoping that there would be peace in that country. The Ethiopian refugees in Sudan are between two uncomfortable rocks. We hope that they would be freed of these two rocks so that they can live and prosper.
When we get more information, we will share them with you as soon as possible. Thank you for all your humanitarian support.
Following the Pretoria Peace Agreement between the Tigray Peoples Liberation Front and the Ethiopian Federal government, we are expecting the implementation of several activities in Tigray. Banks have opened in the main cities, there is the internet and mobile phone as well but not yet in the rural areas.
One of the major situations is the resettlement of people back in their homes after being evacuated due to the ethnic cleansing from Western Tigray. Some of them have moved to Sudan but many of them have moved to the central and Eastern Tigray.
We are just waiting for the resettlement of the internal refugees back to their homes. Once the occupiers are out of all Tigray we shall look into how the project can benefit the Tigrayans in Sudan by looking at how they will be affected by the resettlement project. So far no one has been returned to their homes and the interim government of Tigray is working with the federal government on how to control the occupied region and resettle the internal and international refugees.
I will keep you posted as new developments emerge in this area. Thank you again for your support and interest to help the displaced people of Tigray.
Greetings to all of you. Thank you for your continued support of the Tigray refugees in Sudan.
There have been lots of suffering in the midst of the Tigrayan refugees in Sudan. There have been tornadoes, floods, and the recent fire. The recent fire has destroyed the shelters and many people lost their personal property including clothing.
The global efforts to bring peace to Ethiopia continued. The Africa Union with support from the USA and the EU has been working on that. Recently the combatants met in Pretoria, Republic of South Africa, and agreed on the cessation of hostilities. The military leaders of Ethiopia and Tigray met in Nairobi, Kenya and to implement the ceasefire and the restoration of the basic infrastructure in Tigray including the telephone, banks, federal and regional educational institutions as well as humanitarian supply. Some meetings have taken place in Tigray but the work is still continuing.
The work of restoration is in its infancy but we are hoping it is continuing. The Eritrean soldiers that helped the Federal government and the Amhara militia are still in Tigray and expected to leave Tigray according to the agreement.
Once the foreign troops are out we believe the internally displaced people (IDP) will return to their homes and the Tigrayan refugees in Sudan will plan to return home. That will be good news but we don't know when that will happen.
We will continue to raise our funds as the needs of the returnees will continue. Please continue to spread the word about our project. I will keep you updated on the issues.
Thank you very much for your continued support for the Tigrayan refugees from Tigray. The refugees run away from their homes due to the war. We are working very hard to raise the funds so that we can provide support to the refugees in the area of food security.
Recently, there have been movements towards a negotiation between the two parties. A group of western representatives including those from the USA, the EU, the UK, and Canada as well as other parties visited Mekelle on the 3rd of August to gather ideas and contribute towards settlement. The representatives have returned to Addis Ababa to share the information with the Ethiopian Federal leaders. We hope that this effort will lead to a permanent peace settlement in the region. That will affect the status of displaced people both internationally and dlocally.
Thank you for your fundraising efforts and support. We will continue to work hard and raise the money to support the Tigrayan refugees in Sudan, Please share the information with your friends, neighbors, and relatives.
I hope all is well with you and your loved ones. The war in Tigray still continues despite talk of a humanitarian truce between the Ethiopian government and the Tigray Defence Forces (TDF). Twenty trucks with food aid have entered Mekelle. They were supposed to be 100 trucks a day. There was no continued entry of the humanitarian delivery. I hope it will resume.
On the other hand, the number of refugees entering Sudan has increased with the entry of the new year. This shows that the effect of the push factor such as the war is increasing as people are leaving Tigray running out for life.
Please share the information about the project with friends and family workers so that we can raise more money and start the project. That will be very helpful to start the implementation.
