Together We Will Overcome!

Donate and Save Lives!

As the global community is gripped by the uncertainty wrought by the Coronavirus outbreak, one thing that is certain is that the level of our preparedness and strict adherence to health guidelines will determine how we cope with and overcome this pandemic.

In order to better equip Ethiopia’s national response, the Government has recently launched the COVID-19 National Resource Mobilisation Committee to oversee the pooling of financial and non-financial resources, as a measure to bolster preparedness for a severe outbreak.

This is the time for us to redirect our energy from panic, fear and worry towards a purposeful contribution – pooling our resources together in support of our emergency response.

Accordingly, a number of bank accounts have been established to facilitate monetary contributions from within Ethiopia and the Diaspora.

Let us demonstrate as a nation and people that in the face of adversity, we rise to the challenge of confronting the Coronavirus, united by our responsibility to the home we call Ethiopia!
