We believe that organizations that are deeply rooted in local communities are in the best position to provide long-term support for survivors of natural disasters like these. By funding the relief efforts of local organizations, donations to this fund have the potential to build stronger response capacity so that these organizations are better equipped to face future challenges.
The projects listed below are led by vetted GlobalGiving partners responding to this disaster. You can donate directly to a specific project or to GlobalGiving’s Tigray Famine and Crisis Relief Fund and we'll allocate it to where it's needed most. GlobalGiving will post reports about how your donation has been put to use.
The conflict in Ethiopia has developed into a humanitarian disaster and the humanitarian situation is rapidly deteriorating in large parts of the country. A year into a conflict between government forces and the Tigray People's Liberation Front (TPLF), Ethiopia has seen thousands of lives lost and more than a million people displaced. Now, a larger humanitarian crisis looms, with nearly half a million facing starvation in Amhara. To avert this humanitarian catastrophe Life-saving action needed
The conflict in Tigray, Ethiopia has left many communities looted and/or destroyed. As the region is slowly moving towards peace, people want to move back to their areas of origin. This project will assist vulnerable communities to get back on their feet using a holistic approach.
During times of crisis, Terre des Hommes Netherlands works quickly to provide life-saving assistance to children and their families. Terre des Hommes Netherlands aims to provide comprehensive child protection services, SGBV prevention and response services as well as psychosocial support to the victims of conflict in the North Shewa Zone of Amhara region. Through the project initiatives, 15,000 individuals (2400 women, 6000 girls, 1600 men and 5000 boys ) will be supported.
The humanitarian and hunger crisis in Ethiopia has worsened. Food insecurity, conflict and violence, climate change, and economic turmoil have pushed more than five million people - almost 90% of the population -into a state of emergency. ActionAid will provide food, shelter, and medical support to the most vulnerable and marginalized families in the country.
The Horn of Africa is facing one of the worst droughts on record with some 14 million people in Ethiopia, Kenya, and Somaliland facing severe hunger and water shortages. ActionAid is working with local partners to provide food relief.
The civil war in Ethiopia led to more than 61,000 Tigrayans to flee to the Sudan as refugees. Many are internally displaced. The people left their villages and towns in Tigray due to the war that started on Nov 4 2020. Many refugees report they left their homes unplanned due to bombardment and attack on the life of their loved ones. Many families are separated and are stressed due to the traumatic experiences. There are children with no parents. The project plans to improve their resilience.
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.
