Hello every one!

We are sure all of you are vigilantly watching the most recent and unprecedented wave of political violence in Ethiopia, and the deep wound inflicted thereof amongst fellow citizens.

While the country continues to experience one of its worst population displacements triggered by political malice and ethnic violence, many innocent Tigreans are still trying to come to terms with what the future hold for them. For these Tegaru, what is at stake is not politics. It is their future!

 Semi-official reports estimate that more than 30,000 Tegaru have been evicted by violent ethnic reprisals, mainly from the Amhara and Oromia states. Many have already lost their loved ones, homes and businesses. They have suffered injuries, and experienced unspeakable violence and brutality. The trauma and suffering of these families is unimaginable.

Keeping up with rent, utility costs, food, clothing for multiple children, medical expenses, educational expenses, household supplies, and a myriad of other needs simply outpaces all available efforts and resources.

The Tigray state government has been an excellent primary short-term support resource, but the task of resettling theses families extends far beyond what the regional government can provide.

They need our help to heal, find safety, and rebuild their lives.
We know that many of us are looking for a way to help theses families. So, let’s join together and show them the great compassion that Tigreans are endowed with.

Your donation provides a sense of hope to our fellow Tegaru!

Any amount makes a difference to this families. Thank you for helping.

Ethiopians flee to Sudan after ethnic based attack

November 8, 2018 | by Ethiopia Observer | 0 

◾ Four were killed in the violence in Metema and Shinfa

About 300 members of Tigrayan ethnic groups have fled to neighbouring Sudan after several people were attacked in what was described as ethnic-based attack. Refugees from Metema, a town in north-western Ethiopia, on the border with Sudan, had begun to arrive in Sudan on November 6, witnesses said, adding that they were mostly women and children. Tigrayan businesses were attacked on Tuesday by the Amhara ethnic youth armed with rocks and weapons.

One of the displaced, who used to own a bar in Metema and lived there for the past seventeen years, told VOA that he and many others took shelter on Tuesday night at military camp of the Ethiopian Military Defence Force before crossing to Sudan where they were welcomed by the Red Cross. “We were targeted because of our ethnicity. The assailants first started attacking people at Ginde Wuha town and another village called Kuakit and they came to us,” he was quoted as saying. He said all his properties were all torched.

Another displaced who used to maintain a gold jewelry in the town said that the attack started against the Kimant people and then turned into Tigrayans in different parts of the town, including Gonder Ber and Custom Checkpoint. But most of those targeted were Tigrayans, he said.

The Kimant, minority group, who saw themselves as cultural cousins of the Falashas, live in various parts of the Amhara region, including in Chilga, Lay Armachiho, Qwara, Dembiya, and Wogera and have been making demands for autonomy.

The displaced people said that they have still family members stuck in the area because they either did not know how to go out or did not have the means to pay means of transportation.

The Amhara region government announced that four people were killed in the violence in Metema and Shinfa. The people behind the attack were unidentified gunmen and an investigation group had been sent to the area, the region’s police commissioner Chief Zelalem Lijalem was quoted as saying by VOA. Zelalem condemned groups who are trying to turn this into ethnic conflict and trying to gain political benefits from it.

Territorial claims and border disputes between the Amhara and Tigray regions, including the issues of Wolkait and Raya have been simmering for the past three decades, sliding into ethnic clash in recent weeks. Amharas who were evicted and displaced from the Wolkait area and sheltered in Gondar and Bahir Dar are still waiting for government assistance.
