Give now to provide emergency assistance to refugees fleeing Ethiopia 


In the last four weeks, more than 50,000 children, women, and men have fled the Tigray region of Ethiopia in order to find safety in neighboring Sudan. 

While worrying about catching COVID-19, these families, now in desperate need of emergency assistance to meet their basic needs, fled for their lives with no time to take even the essentials. 

Families have been separated, conditions for children are extremely harsh, and women and girls face protection issues. UNFPA estimates that, of the newly arrived refugees in Sudan, more than 700 are likely to be pregnant, and there may be around 150 survivors of gender-based violence in need of assistance.

Face masks, hygiene kits, food, water, shelter, blankets, formula, diapers, and clothes are a critical need now for these individuals. 

We have launched this emergency campaign to raise $100,000.00 to meet the critical needs of these refugees and we need your help. Any amount you are able to give will make a huge difference. 

You can also donate by check and we will record your donation on this platform. To donate by check, please mail it to:

ECDC, 901 South Highland Street, Arlington, VA 22204.
