Due to the violent crisis in some parts of the Amhara region in Ethiopia, more than eight thousand Tigreans have been displaced and fled to the Sudan. They have now in repatriated to the Tigray region.
In response to this crisis, some concerned Tigreans in the Washington, DC metropolitan area have established the Emergency Response Task Force for Displaced Tigreans. With its principal office location in Arlington Virginia, the Emergency Response Task Force has established a Displaced Tigreans Fund through fund-raising activities directed at concerned Ethiopians and friends in the North America in support of these displaced Tigreans.
This effort is being conducted in accordance with all 501(c)(3) regulations and all funds contributed to the Displaced Tigreans Fund will be tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.
