UNHCR | Donate to help people forced to flee Ethiopia due to recent violence

Thousands forced to flee as violence erupts in the Tigray region, Ethiopia.

After enduring a week of violent clashes between federal and regional forces, civilians in the Tigray region of Ethiopia are in crisis. Communication networks are down, banking services are halted, roads are blocked and there are shortages of basic supplies. 

Fearing for their lives and the lives of their families, thousands of children, women and men have been forced to flee into Sudan. Most people travelled with nothing. They have left behind their belongings. They are often separated from their families.

Please help today. We urgently need to scale up our supplies so that we are ready to respond as the situation worsens.  

More than 47,000 refugees have arrived in Sudan exhausted and scared and are being sheltered in transit centres near the border. Water and meals are being provided and UNHCR and the Sudanese authorities are working around the clock to set up a new refugee site to shelter them.

Your donation will allow us to continue to provide urgent, life-saving help to refugees  

We can’t do this alone – thank you!
