Over 20,000 people in Ethiopia will receive life-saving emergency aid after Irish Aid today delivered 118 tonnes of aid to Trócaire.
Our team in Ethiopia received the aid – valued at €500,000 – today and will immediately begin distributing it to over 20,000 people who have been displaced by violence in the Moyale region. The aid is mostly made-up of shelter, kitchen sets and hygiene kits.
July 2018 marks the one-year anniversary of Trócaire's emergency appeal in response to the crisis in East Africa. Trócaire has been able to respond to the crisis providing water, food and funds to 75,000 people.
July 2018 marks the one-year anniversary of Trócaire's emergency appeal in response to the crisis in East Africa.
This appeal responded to the threat of famine in Somalia, South Sudan, Kenya and Ethiopia. A combination of drought and conflict left almost 25 million people facing severe food shortages.

Trócaire supporters are helping to bring hope to survivors of drought in Kenya, where we have provided emergency aid to over 27,000 people.
Kenyans have survived through two years of failed rains. It is the worst crisis the country has faced since 2011.
Thankfully, since mid-February 2018, the weather has started to improve. Some rains have arrived early to the drought affected regions of Kenya, bringing hope to people. This has improved access to water for both livestock and for human consumption.
In a village in Nyamagabe, Rwanda, the community have built a water pond that serves a communal garden now benefitting twenty five families.
While Rwanda benefits from two rainy seasons, because of its location in the equatorial region, climate change has had a big impact. Rainfall has become more erratic and the rainy seasons are shorter. Water harvesting schemes like these help maximise the use of the water that is available.
Flooding in Kenya has forced almost 250,000 people from their homes over recent days.
Trócaire is responding and will be providing food, water and other aid to 12,000 people over the coming weeks.
The flooding has been caused by heavy rainfall across the country. This follows prolonged drought that left millions without food – a further sign of the weather extremes now facing people in the region.
Approximately 100 people have died as a result of the floods. The flooding has also led to an outbreak of cholera.
