1 min read

November 2020, a conflict erupted in Ethiopia’s Tigray region between the Ethiopian government and the regional government of Northern Tigray, leading to turmoil in the region. The conflict has left thousands of people dead with others in inhumane and deplorable conditions.

The conflict caused a massive humanitarian crisis whereby aid agencies have been unable to adequately respond to the crisis and deliver assistance. The international community quickly gained attention to the atrocities and human rights violations taking place on the Ethiopian territories. An estimated 4.5 million people, which is roughly two-thirds of Tigray’s population, are currently in need of humanitarian aid.

The conflict is still ongoing, and the situation continues to deteriorate, where the humanitarian conditions are extremely alarming.
