U.S. provides over $181 million to avert famine in Tigray, Ethiopia

The United States is providing more than $181 million to deliver food, water, and aid to feed more than three million people in the Tigray region of Ethiopia. 

 

The aid, provided through the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), will provide enough food to feed three million people for nearly two months as well as seeds, tools, and fertilizers to help farmers replant crops, according to a statement from USAID.

 

The agency will also provide safe spaces and psychological support for women and girls as well as case management for survivors of gender-based violence, according to the statement. The United States has contributed nearly $487 million in humanitarian assistance since the crisis began, according to the statement.
