Challenge

Civilians are facing the ongoing effects of the conflict in Tigray, and life-saving aid is needed to avert a catastrophe. Access to food and humanitarian assistance is limited, and health facilities and other key infrastructure have been damaged in the fighting. The region is also prone to natural hazards. People fleeing are faced with difficult circumstances within Ethiopia, including drought, flooding, widening conflict, and disease outbreaks.

Solution

Your donation to this fund will help provide emergency relief to people impacted by these humanitarian crises and give local organizations the resources they need to act quickly and protect the most affected communities. As immediate needs are met, the fund will transition to support locally led long-term response and recovery efforts.

How Your Donation Will Be Used

When you donate to GlobalGiving's Tigray Famine and Crisis Relief Fund, your donation will be used to:

  • Provide food, water, and emergency medical supplies to people
  • Support temporary relief and emergency supplies for displaced families
  • Meet other needs that emerge

About GlobalGiving’s Disaster Response

When a disaster strikes, recovery efforts led by people who live and work in affected communities are often overlooked and underfunded. GlobalGiving is changing this reality. Since 2004, we've been shifting decision-making power to crises-affected communities through trust-based grantmaking and support.

We make it easy, quick, and safe to support people on the ground who understand needs in their communities better than anyone else.

They were there long before the news cameras arrived, and they’ll be there long after the cameras leave. They know how to make their communities more resilient to future disasters, and they’re already hard at work. GlobalGiving puts donations and grants directly into their hands. Because the status quo—which gives the vast majority of funding to a few large organizations—doesn’t make sense.
