Ethiopia Emergency Response

Long-standing animosities erupted into armed conflict in Ethiopia’s Tigray region in November 2020. Millions of people fled their homes due to violence; those who stayed, faced famine conditions when the war effort blocked all food transports. FH was forced to halt operations temporarily in Tigray and parts of Amhara region. While a peace deal took effect in November 2022, local outbursts of violence continue to hamper relief efforts. And parts of the zone suffer the effects of climate change, bringing both drought and flooding to conflict-battered communities.

1 Million+

Millions of people still lack access to the basic necessities.

Drought + Food Shortage

Climate change has exasperated the situation by limited access to food and water.

Millions of people still lack access to the basic necessities. Your gifts will provide people with a reliable source of staple foods, and the assistance to restart farming and livestock businesses. This means children can once again eat nutritious meals, attend school, and pay for health care when they’re sick.

Should funds raised for this effort exceed the budgeted need, remainders will be used in the best possible way to help communities challenged by poverty, injustice and marginalization. FH is accountable before God and you to use gifts wisely. As members of Excellence in Giving and the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability, we also abide by their strict reporting standards.

Gift Policy:
You may send small, flat paper-based items that can fit into a standard #10 size envelope, have a value of less than $5 dollars and weigh less than 4 ounces. We ask that you send small, flat items of this size because shipping is expensive and even small gift items can cause issues clearing customs.
You can send postcards or photographs, however, we ask that you visit here for more details about culturally appropriate guidelines for photos and other images. Please write the child’s ID # on the back of each item that you enclose with your letter to ensure that it reaches him/her.
