From Ethiopia, our humanitarian colleagues tell us that access into the Tigray region has continued to gradually improve since the peace agreement. Food and other supplies are being transported through four corridors through Afar and Amhara regions into Tigray.
Between 15 November and 8 December, the Government of Ethiopia and our partners have mobilized more than 1,600 trucks to deliver more than 63,800 metric tons of food and more than 4,000 metric tons of health, shelter, education, protection supplies, as well as water, sanitation and hygiene supplies.
Airlifts of nutrition and health supplies have also been delivered, while regular humanitarian passenger flights have been flying in much needed human capacity to scale up the response. The first humanitarian convoy movement for staff from Mekelle to Shire, within Tigray, also took place on 9 December and have continued since.
However, given the scale of the needs and the previous interruptions to aid, we need to ensure these deliveries are sustained at scale.
Meanwhile, electric lines and telecommunications have started being restored in some places, including in Axum and Shire towns. This has a positive impact on humanitarian operations and communities, but further progresses is needed on resumption of basic services for the population.
Assistance and rehabilitation work in conflict-affected areas in Afar and Amhara are also being scaled up, but more is needed especially in areas where displaced populations are returning following improved security.
You may need to expose those deep pocketed men, probably hold US citizenship, living in USA for their support to Abiy Ahmed , killing Oromos, Amhara , Tegaru, Gurage, Kimant, Gumuz, etc The above people are mainly from Amhara region, and they are indifferent to the mass killings, and displacement of Amhara .Their actions and support to abiy ahmed, genocidal leader, are sufficient evidences for their role in the killings of innocent civilians. Washington DC mayor(bürgermeister) also reportedly given a land in addis Ababa. That is the reason why foreign leaders do want to keep Abiy Ahmed in power. ESAT composed of Amhara people are still supporting Abiy Amed when Oromos and Amhara dying massively. Stop killing Oromos, Amhara, Tegaru and all other ethnic memnbers in Ethiopia. Oust Abiy Amed to enjoy lasting peace and stability.
