On 9th October 2016 the Ethiopian Government declared a state of emergency, following months of anti-government protests.

The current state of emergency will remain in Ethiopia for 6 months, according to the Government.  There have been no reported major incidents this past week. Vision Aid Overseas continues to monitor the situation on a daily basis through our staff and partners in country, and through the local and international media.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding the current situation in Ethiopia, you can contact our Programme Manager, Anne Buglass, by emailing anne.buglass@visionaidoverseas.org or by calling 01293 535 016.

On behalf of Vision Aid Overseas, we would like to thank you for your continued support.
