A two-day tour of the Gash-Barka region of Eritrea was undertaken from June 25-26, 2000 to assess the basic condition of the IDPs scattered across that region and, more importantly, to assess the condition of the major towns and villages previously under E thiopian occupation in order to determine their suitability and capacity to accept returning IDPs.
With more than 550,000 Eritreans displaced since Ethiopia invaded the country on May 12--and the number climbing daily--many people are contacting the Eritrean Development Foundation (EDF) to ask where to send donated clothes, medicines, food and other items. But such gifts are NOT what is needed. In fact they may even interfere with efforts to collect and send what is desperately needed--cash. For this reason, EDF is not sending any individually-donated items to Eritrea.
On May 12, 2000, Ethiopia launched a massive military attack against its neighbor, Eritrea. Heavy fighting has been reported ever since with mounting deaths and severe dislocation of Eritrean civilians caught in the fighting.
The Eritrean Development Foundation (EDF) today appealed for urgently needed assistance for tens of thousands of civilians displaced by renewed war between Ethiopia and Eritrea. The Washington, DC-based aid agency also called for urgent international action to halt the fighting.
