90% of the population in Tigray Ethiopia need assistance because of the ongoing conflict. USAID believes a famine may already be happening, threatening the lives of hundreds of thousands of people. There have already been reports of starvation, and the number of malnourished children is increasing each week. If the conflict doesn’t end & humanitarians can’t access more people in need, this devastating situation will get even worse. The best way to help is to donate to orgs working on the ground.
