UNICEF calls for providing humanitarian assistance to children affected by the Tigray conflict in Ethiopia

The United Nations Children Education Fund (UNICEF) has called providing aid to millions of children uprooted by the ongoing crisis in the Tigray region of Ethiopia on a priority basis. 

Henrietta Fore, UNICEF’s Executive Director said; “  Some 2.3 million children in Tigray, Ethiopia, remain cut off from humanitarian assistance amid continuing violence since the beginning of November. “We are extremely concerned that the longer access to them is delayed, the worse their situation will become as supplies of food, including ready-to-use therapeutic food for the treatment of child malnutrition, medicines, water, fuel and other essentials run low. “Protecting these children, many of whom are refugees and internally displaced, and providing them with humanitarian aid must be a priority”.
