The war in Tigray continues - Livelihood disrupted

Dear project supporters and contributors,

I hope all is well with you and your loved ones. I wish I can say that all is good in Tigray where our project is located. The war that started at the beginning of November has not stopped.  My contact with the village is still cut due to lack of telephone communication. News reports in social media are reporting that there are fierce battles going on now between the Tigray Regional government and the Ethiopian and Eritrean forces.  More than 61, 000 Tigrayans have moved to the Sudan as refugees, millions of people are internally displaced.

The UNSC and the US are working for a cease-fire and the withdrawal of combatants from the region. Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch have detailed information on the crisis. Here is the link FYI.

https://www.amnesty.org/en/latest/news/2021/02/ethiopia-eritrean-troops-massacre-of-hundreds-of-axum-civilians-may-amount-to-crime-against-humanity/

Rape, pillaging of household property and widespread killing are being reported.  

Let’s not lose hope. When peace eventually returns our project and its methodology will serve as a tool to strengthen the capacity of the households to rebuild the destroyed livelihood and contribute to sustainability. In the meantime, please push for a ceasefire and the withdrawal of non-Ethiopian forces that are destroying the region.  

We will appreciate if you use your social media to bring peace and security to the Tigray region.

Thank you for all your support,

Tsegay Wolde-Georgis
