Haben Tigray Event Christmas Giving to Tigrayan Refugees in Sudan
As we approach Christmas, we invite all to be part of a joint project by Haben Tigray & Green Tuneydbah Foundation to support Tigrayan refugees in Sudan by contributing uto start farms and feed their families.
Recent information from refugees indicates that food aid provided by the World Food Program (WFP) which was previously inadequate has been reduced further by 50% starting from August 2022. The resulting food-insecurity, lack of basic needs and income to support themselves and their families leaves the populations vulnerable to risks that affect their health and security.
As a response, Haben Tigray is collaborating with individuals and organizations to promote small-scale farming solutions for these refugees by supporting a project which would help them produce food for their households by making use of the small plots of land near their shelters. This can help them gain income while creating employment opportunities throughout the camp. Green Tunaydbah Foundation (GTF) was established by refugees to mobilize the community around farming activities in the camp. Through its initial work with 184 refugees, GTF has proven that the lives of multiple households can be changed for the better with resourcefulness, innovation, and local community action.

Urgent Humanitarian Aid for IDPs in Tigray
Since early 2021, Haben Tigray and its members have been donating funds and whenever opportunities arise, sending resources to Tigray for the purpose of supplying urgent humanitarian assistance.
Helping Injured Children in Mekelle
Recipients of aid include Beti who lost her mom, her brother and her grandmother after heavy artillery in Axum. She survived but lost her two legs. The Mekelle physiotherapy center is helping her to walk again using artificial limbs.
In consultation with her doctors in, Haben Tigray members in Tigray bought her a bike which would help her to exercise walking and cycling with her man-made limbs.
Urgent Aid to IDPs and Residents in Mekelle and Shire
Haben Tigray allocated funds to our teams in Tigray to coordinate the purchase and delivery of multiple rounds of humanitarian aid operations to help families of Internally Displaced People (IDPs) and residents in Mekelle and Shire. The recipients of emergency food, sanitary supplies and cash for medical expenses included hundreds of families of IDPs sheltered in various camps, female-headed households, individuals with disability, children with physical injuries, pregnant women, breast-feeding mothers, children and elders including those displaced from monasteries.
However, the amount of aid for each family and the number of families covered in this effort falls short of the needs on the ground.
