Again most alarming news from Tigray capital Mekelle
Email from the clinical director of Ayder University Hospital Mekelle - forwarded by Etiopia-Witten assoc. to relevant international institutions
Dear our colleagues,
There is no functional governmental structure in Mekele currently and we see and hear lots of robbery and theft even during daylight.
The hospital is almost nonfunctional. There's no electricity and we will completely be in darkness when the few barrels of fuel for the generator are finished.
There is no oxygen, no medication, we can't also do any surgery even for our mothers who need CS. If the condition continues like this i am afraid we will start seeing epidemics of different diseases including missiles.
We tried to approach the military but i don't think they will do anything useful except keeping the hospital secured.
The world should know about this and press on allowing humanitarian aids.
I will update you soon
