Dear Supporters,

Thank you for being the first to support the project. The number of refugees from Ethiopia to Sudan continues to increase despite the Ethiopian government's blockage of the escape routes. We hope that there were will be peace in Ethiopia so that the refugees can return home.

We have received important information about the Tigray refugees from Freelance journalist and project advisor Millete Berhane-Meskel of Denver, Colorado, who visited the Sudan camps. She reported that people are full of trauma due to the experience of persecution and the evil things they saw and experienced such as killings, beatings, and rape.  Some were attacked by machetes and knives and many saw mortal victims lying on the roads. Millete quotes Mr. Belay, a Tigray refugee “We saw evil things, people whose necks were cut, limbs hanging,” Belay said. “There was no one to bury the dead. They were just lying there.

The demographic structure of the Tigray refugee community in Sudan includes old women and men, young girls and boys as well as children; and from all professions including a medical doctor who is helping the refugee community. According to the Dr., there are hundreds of women that were raped by the invading Ethiopian forces. Most of the refugees are from Western Tigray.

While raising the necessary funds we are also looking to identify a partner that is on the ground working with the refugees to help us partner to implement our project.

We are sharing the pictures of the Tigrayan refugee camps that Millete Berhane-Meskel kindly shared with us.

Again, thank you for your support and please share the project with you friends and family to help us raise the necessary fund.

Sincerely

Tsegay
