Conflict between the Federal Government and forces aligned with the Tigray People’s Liberation Front has left 5.2 million people needing immediate humanitarian assistance.
The conflict is spilling over into neighbouring Afar and Amhara regions, and is worsening food insecurity, increasing displacement, and disrupting livelihoods.
1.8 million people have been displaced by the expanding conflict in Afar and Amhara and urgently need support and aid supplies.
Working together with communities and partners, Save the Children has helped almost 500,000 people since the start of the conflict. We’ve been distributing emergency food, as well as shelter and emergency kits. Our Health & Nutrition teams have set up mobile clinics to offer essential healthcare, as well as treatment to children with malnutrition.
Yet shortages of fuel and cash are hindering the delivery of humanitarian assistance, just when children and their families need it the most.
