Tigray, Ethiopia: 2.3 million children need your help amid conflict
“We were caught up in the crossfire of heavy shelling,” says Yonas, a 12-year-old boy from Shiraro, a town in the far north of Ethiopia. “Because of the conflict, I travelled on foot with severe hunger.” He walked nearly 100km (62 miles) to get to the next major town. Since the conflict broke out in November 2020 in Tigray, northern Ethiopia, 2.2 million people, including children like Yonas, were initially forced to flee their homes.
