Church Gives material and spiritual aid to war-torn ethiopia

“The situation is worsening by the moment. The people are at the end of their strength. Mothers come to ask help because they have lost their children and don’t know where they are,” an Ethiopian Catholic priest told Aid to the Church in Need, asking his name not be revealed.

There is a major humanitarian crisis in the Tigray Region in the north of Ethiopia. It is caused by the conflict between the national government and the Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF). It erupted last November and led to a brutal military intervention by troops of the Ethiopian federal army joined by forces from Ethiopia’s northern neighbor Eritrea.

“I don’t have the words to describe their suffering; there is great despair and the people are traumatized,” the priest said.
