Challenges - COVID, locust and now an ugly War

Dear Friends and Contributors,

The new year started great for our project. I visited the project area and was excited to see the current progress and future potential. Our 2020 funding was great. However, the rest of 2020 has been tragic. First, it was COVID-19 then the locust infestation followed and is still ongoing. Recently. we sent vegetable seeds to the village through a volunteer who traveled to Tigray.  Unfortunately, there comes a manmade disaster, war.

On November 3, 2020, the  Ethiopian Federal government declared war on the Tigray regional state due to a constitutional misunderstanding. There is a blackout of communication in the region as the internet and phone lines are cut. All banks are also closed and a curfew is declared in the region. No civilians and commodities are going into the region. The place has now turned into an active war zone and a humanitarian disaster is expected by many experts.  Our plan to discuss priority projects after the harvest is now disrupted. 

We need to pray and appeal for a ceasefire and cessation of hostilities as well as phone and internet access. Please contact your representatives to stop the war in Ethiopia and avert any humanitarian disaster. 

I am sorry to send you this bad news.

May peace prevail in the region and the world so that we can focus on development. Thank you.
