How VSO is responding
Across the country, families face food shortages, high levels of child malnutrition, and inadequate health facilities. Women have been unable to access medical support.
VSO volunteers and partners are providing financial support to mothers and pregnant women so they can access food, water and blankets.
We're working in camps providing psycho-social support to girls and women who have suffered gender based violence. This empowers them to understand their rights and break the silence on their suffering.
VSO has been working in Ethiopia since 1995, and recently our volunteers had been committed to working to improve neonatal and maternal health services in hospitals.
