One of the places most impacted by the escalation of the Tigray conflict is the Woldiya administration. In order to protect their survival and safety, the majority of residents of this district moved to Dessie town and other nearby villages. These IDPs are currently back in their original location where they can resume their prior lives. In total, 106,520 (62,500 female) persons have been seriously affected by the violence and require immediate multi-sectoral humanitarian assistance, according to the assessment report from the Woldiya Major office. As families evacuated their homes and crops, food hunger grew. In the near future, they lose the ability to support themselves and feel good about themselves.

Due to the majority of WASH infrastructures being destroyed, poor WASH services pose a risk to the public’s health that disproportionately affects PLW and children under the age of five. In order to achieve this, Cordaid plans to offer multi-sectoral services in five kebeles (04 (Yeju Genet), 05 (Addis Ketema), 06 (Deferge), 07 (Adengur), and 10 (Golla) of Woldiya Administration, North Wollo Zone, Amhara region, with a focus on reinstating the recovery and resilience efforts of the affected community.
People That We Work With
The project will directly target 60,100 people (39,065 Females) in five kebeles of Woldiya Administration, North Wollo Zone, Amhara region.
Through the provision of food security, livelihood, WASH, and Multi-Purpose Cash (MPC) interventions for conflict-affected communities, the initiative seeks to minimize human suffering and restore their livelihood and dignity.
