Support children and their families in Tigray
Ethiopia is experiencing a triple crisis:
- Locusts have destroyed crops, decimated incomes and left many families hungry.
- COVID-19 has decimated livelihoods, and
- Conflict has forced tens of thousands of people from their homes.
World Vision has been working in the Tigray region for more than 40 years. Our staff are one the ground, providing support for those in need. Our greatest concern is for the safety and well-being of vulnerable populations, especially children.
Our team in Ethiopia is working, in coordination with other humanitarian organisations, to support families in need by:
- Providing shelter and non-food items to those who have been displaced.
- Providing access to safe drinking water and appropriate sanitation and hygiene facilities
- Partnering with health facilities to ensure they have the necessary supplies.
- Providing support to rehabilitate schools that were damaged to ensure children will be receive an education in safe and conducive environment.
World Vision calls on all sides in the conflict to promote peace and humanitarian access in Tigray.
