Humanitarian Crisis in Ethiopia’s Tigray Region

Humanitarian Crisis in Ethiopia’s Tigray Region

GRAN is deeply concerned about the worsening humanitarian crisis in Tigray that is having a disproportionate impact on women and children.

Speaking at the end of his five day visit to Ethiopia, Francesco Rocco, President of the International Federation of the Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC), said:

I am very concerned about the conditions that I saw during my visit, including the internally displaced by the fighting, especially children, their mothers and the elderly. It was clear to me that the people of Tigray need much more support than they are currently getting.”

The international community, including Canada, is urging Ethiopia to grant full access for humanitarian convoys and medical supplies to the region.
