From Drought to Floods: Help vulnerable, displaced people pick themselves up from repeated climate devastation.
The Afar region of Ethiopia is known for its natural beauty – and its natural disasters. It’s home to thousands of refugees who have fled over the border from Eritrea, fleeing conflict in the nearest place they can find.
Their lives have been repeatedly devastated by a cycle of droughts, floods, and extreme climate events. Ethar is in contact with more than 1600 Eritrean refugees who’ve lost everything in the recent flooding.
This is not just a bit of rain: people are stranded and their loved ones, property, and livestock have been swept away.
At this moment of greatest emergency, Ethar Relief is prioritising food, clean water, and medical care for injuries. Please help us to reach as many people as we can.
