The Gambella region gets 10 million chip. in support of humanitarian efforts in Tigray

Gambella _ Tigray


As remnants of TPLF, as governments call them, they regroup to disrupt humanitarian efforts in Tigray and finally try once again to take power in the region and perhaps also in Addis Ababa, the national mobilization in the country to deal with to the humanitarian crisis continues to drip. .

The latest contribution comes from the Gambella region of Ethiopia. According to DW Amharic news published on Sunday, the region’s administration made the decision to contribute 10 million Ethiopian birr to the rehabilitation of Tigray.

Not only that, members of the Gambella region cabinet give up to 50 per cent of their income.

Last week, the Afar regional government gave the Tigray region food worth nine million Ethiopian birr.

Earlier in the week, Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed had a meeting with the interim administration of the Tigray region and city administrators. It was about how to mobilize support to rehabilitate and rebuild the region, as he revealed through his updates on social media.

He personally donated 200,000 Ethiopian Birr from the income from his book (Medemer) and his one-month salary. The prime minister’s office also donated three water tanker trucks.

Aside from humanitarian crises, security is an even greater challenge in the region. On Friday, Tigray activist Yemane Niguse and her two escorts died near the town of Mekelle. The Government has confirmed the news and believes that the remains of TPLF are behind the murder.

On Tuesday this week, a repaired power line supplying electricity to the Tigray region was attacked south of Tigray, causing a power outage across the region.
