Transforming lives in Ethiopia

In Ethiopia, conflict and crises have meant 4.6 million people are displaced.

In recent years, Ethiopia has suffered a series of devastating crises, compounded by the political instability and violent conflict across several regions, including Tigray and Oromia.  

Many people are living in overcrowded displacement camps, among them pregnant women and breastfeeding mothers who are in danger of becoming severely malnourished.

These women and their children have had to travel many miles, have seen horrific sights, lost loved ones and been separated from their families and friends. The only option many have is to rely on the kindness of others; the staff and volunteers in the camp, and you.

Please make a gift today and help show these women that they are not alone.

“I joined a group of people fleeing. The journey was very difficult. I saw horrific sights, mothers, girls and children being killed in front of our eyes. I was fortunate to escape with my little baby.”
