The Government of Ethiopia in Coordination with Partners Continues to Deliver Humanitarian Assistance to those in Need in the Tigray Region

In accordance with the government’s directives to deliver humanitarian assistance to those in need in the Tigray Region, coordination was made with partners. A cluster arrangement which aimed at ensuring smooth humanitarian response to the most affected areas has been put in place. i.e., logistics is being facilitated in such pattern where provisions are distributed in terms of food and nutrition, non-food items, emergency shelter, health services, wash services, and transport services. The government has given its all to ensure the delivery, despite the TPLF continuing incursions along aid corridors and making the movement of aid convoys impossible.

The government has been able to facilitate the delivery of 52,537 metric ton of food and non-food items between July 2021 and April 2022 through the Samara -Ab’ala corridor. Sadly, trucks that were used to transport such supplies have been confiscated by the TPLF. Out of the total 1,338 trucks, a significant portion (1,016 or 76%) have been commandeered and used to transport TPLF militias.

Following the humanitarian truce, a convoy comprising of 27 trucks delivered humanitarian support to Tigray on the 1st of April 2022. The convoy carried nutritious food and non-food items obtained from various aid organisations. One fuel tanker with 47,410 litters of fuel was part of this convoy. Moreover, On the 14th of April 2022, World Food Program announced that another humanitarian convoy, composed of 47 trucks loaded with food, nutrition & other lifesaving supplies plus 3 fuel tankers, fundamental to deliver these items to communities in Tigray, transported to Mekelle.
