Two days ago, 6 trucks of the International Committee of the Red Cross delivered food and medical supplies to the Tigray region. According to the information we have received, 20 vehicles loaded with humanitarian aid, which are going to Tigray region through Afar region, have arrived at Afar Serdo city.

According to the peace agreement, the government has continued to extend unlimited aid to the Tigray region. The government is working hard with international donors to deliver unlimited humanitarian aid and medical supplies as promised, according reports from Government of Ethiopia. As a result, a lot of aid has been provided to the people of Tigray.

On November 21, another UN agency dealing with refugees indicated that “1st UNHCR convoy since August arrived in Mekelle, Tigray, carrying life-saving humanitarian aid including medicines & shelter kits to treat the sick and repair destroyed homes.
