Ethiopia’s multiple crises: War, COVID-19, even locusts

Over the past 3 weeks Ethiopia has become embroiled in a brutal internal war, creating severe hardships for the population.  This has come on the heals of COVID and a destructive Locust epidemic.  Mihret Medical is working to supply border hospitals close to the conflict zone that can provide immediate aid to war wounded and refugees.

From the ICRC website:  “The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) visited health care facilities in Tigray and Amhara- many of them yet to receive any assistance— and found them in need of medical supplies and support to care for the influx of wounded. The Ethiopia Red Cross Society (ERCS) has transported hundreds of people injured in areas affected by clashes. Meanwhile, more than 1,000 people have contacted the ICRC’s hotline and visited its office in Mekelle and Addis Ababa looking for help to reach their families.  As fighting continues, we are seeing a devastating humanitarian crisis unfold, not just within Ethiopia but across its borders.”

Mihret Medical Supply Group has channels within the Humanitarian HealthCare network to send much needed medical equipment and supplies to the frontline workers by sea or air.  Please consider an end of year donation towards the work.

Giving Tuesday is next week (Dec 1st) when Facebook may match your donation!
