Mary’s Meals have announced an emergency update and appeal to raise awareness of the dire situation unfolding in Ethiopia due to a combination of drought, displacement, and brutal conflict which has left huge areas of the country in crisis.

The Tigray region, where Mary’s Meals works, is one of the worst affected.

Having lived through the atrocities of the Tigray war, millions of Ethiopians are now facing emergency levels of food insecurity and hunger.

The war has also undone years of progress in Tigray’s education system.

For now, there is an urgent dual priority – ensuring that children in Tigray have food and boosting their chances of engaging with education again.

We are also hosting an online Emergency Update on Tuesday 16 April at 7.00pm.

Our founder & CEO, Magnus MacFarlane-Barrow, and some of the team will be giving an update about their recent visit to Ethiopia and the terrible situation there.

This will be an hour-long session with the opportunity to submit questions, and is open to all!!
