WHAT IS HAPPENING

In November 2020 in a struggle over autonomy, Abiy Ahmed declared war on the Tigray region of Ethiopia claiming retaliation for an unverified attack.  The Tigrian people have been caught in the middle of this bloody conflict for months after having endured a devastating year in which the region faced challenges due to COVID-19, massive flooding and a locust outbreak that destroyed crops.  As a result of a communications blackout, much of the international community is unaware of the atrocities and hardships that continue to face this region.

Here are some of the key concerns:

  • Abiy Ahmed’s has claimed that the war is over and no one was killed in the war despite observers reporting over 60,000 deaths
  • 5 million people are in urgent need of assistance
  • Genocide and ethnic cleansing has been waged on the Tigrian people including those living outside the region
  • Over 2 million people have been displaced
  • Numerous reports of looting and human rights abuses including sexual assault and attacks on refugee camps
  • In December, UNICEF reported that approximately 2.3 million children have been cut off from humanitarian assistance.
