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.
