On the 9th and 10th November 2020 in the town of Mai Kadra, town in the South West Zone of Ethiopia's Tigray Region, TPLF ( Tigrays Peoples Liberation Font) forces and their supporters ( Samri) massacred and killed over 600 innocent people. The victims were civilian, families and children who mainly belongs to the ethnic group Amhara and had nothing to do with the ongoing war with the TPLF and the Government. This have been confirmed by Amnesty International and Ethiopian Human Rights Commission (EHRC).
Amnesty International and EHRC have stated that likely hundreds of people were stabbed or hacked to death in Mai-Kadra. These are civilians who did nothing wrong than being from a certain ethnic group.
With this fundraiser, we want to help survivors, families and children in any way possible so they can get food, water, shelter, medicine and other necessities.
We are two women Sella Molu Mattsson and Wegen Shiferaw who are responsible for this fundraiser.
