Etiopia-Witten, the German development aid association donated $97,552 in May 2022 to Ayder University Hospital in Mekelle, located in Ethiopia's Tigray province, which has been under siege for nearly two years, to purchase food for hospital staff and starving patients. The association immediately received written confirmation that the money had arrived in local currency. The money was intended for the purchase of food for 500 patients, as well as 300 staff members.
Until a few days ago, there was no food to buy at the market in Mekelle. Now the association has received the good news and a video from the management of Ayder Hospital that food for the supply for about three months could be purchased.
