Your support enables vulnerable Ethiopians to rewrite their stories

Ethiopia is a vibrant country experiencing positive development and growth, yet the cycle of poverty is extreme. The poorest and most marginalised are ever more vulnerable. Our Ethiopian partners provide the urgent help needed to make sure no one is left behind.

Currently 30,000 people are counting on us for food for their families and care of their livestock. Lives are at risk.

Please help to change this.

We learned the sad news that the wonderful Dr Catherine Hamlin died peacefully at home in Addis Ababa on Wednesday 18 March.  She was 96 years old.
Dr Hamlin will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved her.  Ethiopiaid is proud to have supported her work and we are committed to ensuring that her legacy continues.
