Tigray Famine and Crisis Relief Fund

Summary

Ethiopia, Africa's second-most populous country, is reeling from multiple humanitarian crises: the Tigray conflict, natural disasters, food shortages, famine, and COVID-19. Donations to this fund will help provide aid and relief to people impacted by these crises and the local organizations working to help them.

Challenge

The UN has said that immediate relief is needed to avoid a famine catastrophe that has been caused by conflict, a deadly season of flooding, severe droughts, and the country's worst locust outbreak in 25 years. These compounding challenges, worsened by climate change, destroyed agricultural yields and made food difficult to access across the country.

Solution

Your donation to this fund will help provide emergency relief to people impacted by these humanitarian crises and give local organizations the resources they need to act quickly and protect the most vulnerable communities.

Long-Term Impact

We believe that organizations that are deeply rooted in local communities are best positioned to lead long-term plans to respond to these crises. GlobalGiving will send you regular email updates about how your donation has been put to use.

About GlobalGiving’s Disaster Response

When a disaster strikes, recovery efforts led by people who live and work in affected communities are often overlooked and underfunded. GlobalGiving is changing this reality. Since 2004, we've been shifting decision-making power to crises-affected communities through trust-based grantmaking and support.

We make it easy, quick, and safe to support people on the ground who understand needs in their communities better than anyone else.

They were there long before the news cameras arrived, and they’ll be there long after the cameras leave. They know how to make their communities more resilient to future disasters, and they’re already hard at work. GlobalGiving puts donations and grants directly into their hands. Because the status quo—which gives the vast majority of funding to a few large organizations—doesn’t make sense.
