Resources are being raised to help displaced people in Ethiopia

Addis Ababa, Jan 31 (Prensa Latina) The Ministry of Women and Social Affairs of Ethiopia on Monday reported that it is raising resources to rehabilitate those displaced by the invasion of the Tigray People's Liberation Front (TPLF) to the Afar and Amhara states.

Our Government has taken several measures to support and assist TPLF victims by establishing a National Disaster Prevention and Preparedness Commission, from which we are a very active part, a cabinet communication stated.

This Committee, the statement adds, is composed of other relevant ministries and institutions, with the objective of promoting, ordering and supervising all fund-raising and distribution actions.

So far, the document further states, we have more than 2,800,000 birr (more than 56.500 dollars) to help the victims, collected in kind and in cash.

In November 2020, the Front attacked the Northern Command of the federal army and Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed responded with a military offensive to counter the armed organization, which has been declared terrorist by Parliament and has been accused of violating human rights, among other crimes.

According to the most recent official information, the number of displaced people in Afar totals at least 1,300,000 and in Amhara exceeds 2,300,000, while more than 8 million live in a situation of food insecurity.
