Following the briefing on the IDPs status in Ethiopia by the National Disaster Risk Management Commission Deputy Head, Ato Tadesse Bekele on the 247th GA meeting of the CCRDA membership, few member organizations and CCRDA visited the area and provided support for the displaced people in Tatatu Kebele of Gedeb woreda at Gedio zone.

The program was initiated by Redeem the Generation and few member organization and CCRDA joined the initiative.  CCRDA collaborated in the coordination and delivery of the support.  The participating member organizations have contributed in cash and kind and the support was organized in package form per family.  The package was organized to meet needs for those who are willing to return back to their place and it includes: one 1.2m mattress, 2 blankets, 2 cooking pan, 5 feeding plates, 1 plastic bucket, 1 boiling pot, 1 plastic washing pan, 5 drinking cups, 25 kg cornflower and menstrual pads.  Overall the support was provided for 300 households (including female headed household) and the cost of the items including transportation is around 2 million birr.  Representatives of the organizations have travelled and provided the items on site as seen on the pictures.

The following organizations contributed to the program:

  7. 7. Fana Addis Tewled Ethiopia
  8. 8. Delasa Community Development Association

On this initiative we observed that:

  • This limited resource has created great hope on the IDPs and officials at grassroots level, thus we are encouraged to do more by mobilizing the membership
  • The challenge and gaps of the displaced people is very high and it requires additional efforts till they get back and settle in a secured manner
  • There is also immediate need of  agricultural tools such as plowing-axe before the end of the farming season
  • Government structure at federal, regional and zonal lever are cooperative for facilitating emergency support for the IDPs
