Help Her Heal

Help Her Heal

Ethiopiaid’s first ever BBC Radio 4 Appeal!

We have been delighted to work with Jane Garvey to present this appeal, for our partner’s vital work towards ending gender-based violence.

The problem

In Ethiopia, nearly a quarter of the women are subjected to gender-based violence, and most of this happens at home.  Each year, Ethiopiaid-supported safehouses help around 4,000 women and girls to find safety, and build a life beyond their recovery.  

As well as this life-saving support, Ethiopiaid is working with front line service providers to bring about long-term change in communities. 

Why Ethiopiaid?

Ethiopia is a vibrant and culturally diverse country. Our approach is simple. We deliver support to people who need it the most, at a time when it will make a real difference. We raise funds for local Ethiopian charities to transform lives and achieve lasting change. 

Mekedes was just a teenager, but for five years she was controlled, threatened and raped by a person she thought she could trust.  

Mekedes’ life changed when she was referred to a women-led safehouse supported by Ethiopiaid. 

Maria, the founder of our women-led safehouses, has dedicated her life to protecting and promoting the human rights of women and girls.
