The International Rescue Committee (IRC) provides a wide range of emergency assistance and long-term support for vulnerable refugees — including at-risk groups such as women and children — to help them cope with and recover from the crisis. All donations go directly to the IRC for immediate use in Tigray, Ethiopia alongside their local partners. The needs are pressing and there is something we can do! Donate directly to the IRC at https://help.rescue.org/donate/ethiopia. All donations are 100% secure and tax-deductible through the International Rescue Committee, a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization.

Ethiopia’s Tigray region is reeling from multiple humanitarian crises. The UN calls for urgent life-saving action and support. Having lived and worked in Ethiopia, the country holds a special place in my heart. The current conflict and volatility in Tigray is absolutely tragic with over 70,000 refugees fleeing the ongoing violence in the region and more than 1.7 million displaced.
With a burning desire to help, I'm raising funds and awareness through my participation in the MARATHON DES SABLES race in October 2021. Although these funds cannot ameliorate the political discord, they can provide emergency aid to those who need it most - vulnerable women and children facing exploitation and abuse. I can no longer just stand by aware of the growing humanitarian crisis, and so, I run… I run for Tigray.
All donations are directed to the International Rescue Committee (IRC) to deploy aid and supplies in Tigray. The IRC is on the ground providing critical medical care, clean water, and other aid in Ethiopia and other crisis areas. Your donation can help them reach families who are struggling to survive.
