The Scottish Government has released funding from its Humanitarian Emergency Fund, to support Tearfund’s work in Ethiopia.

The Scottish Government has stepped in to release funding from its Humanitarian Emergency Fund, to support Tearfund’s work in Ethiopia.

Our world is facing many different issues and challenges at the moment. In East Africa, locusts have devastated crops, and farmers are struggling to survive because their primary income source has been wiped away. The emergency funding will enable our partner Friendship Support Association (FSA), to support over 5,000 people in the Afar region of Ethiopia to buy the food that they so desperately need right now.

The emergency funding will also enable FSA to raise awareness of good hygiene practises – like washing hands regularly with soap and water – to protect against diseases and infections like the coronavirus (COVID-19).
