Jan Egeland, criticized the aid agencies for the situation being monitored, according to a statement

Oslo (ANN)-Three months after the war in Ethiopia’s Tigray region, an unpredictable humanitarian catastrophe is turning into a state of war and isolation.

Aid agencies and human rights groups are sounding the alarm, worrying about the lives of millions of unaccounted for people living in Tigray. because they argue that since the invasion of the region there has been a lack of basic services and a lack of telecommunications, internet, travel and access to relief supplies.

Jan Egeland, secretary general of the Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC) and a Norwegian diplomat, political scientist, humanitarian leader and former Labor Party, dismissed the situation in the region and said it was a blatant lie to say that aid was growing in Tigray. Ethiopia.The statement read as follows.


Jan Egeland, criticized the aid agencies for the situation being monitored, according to a statement from the Norwegian Refugee Council.


“Reacting to the persistent humanitarian access challenges into Tigray, Secretary General of the Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC) Jan Egeland, said:

The statement read as follows

“In all my years as an aid worker, I have rarely seen a humanitarian response so impeded and unable to deliver in response for so long, to so many with such pressing needs. As an international community, we are clearly failing to deliver against the humanitarian imperative we are facing.

Twelve weeks since the fighting began, the basic elements of a response on the scale needed are still not in place. It is false to say that aid is increasingly getting through. Aid has only gone to the places with little conflict and more limited needs and is not keeping pace with the humanitarian crisis as it inevitably grows over time. Millions of women, children and men, including refugees, are in a truly desperate situation, suffering alone without aid or protection.

We know this can change overnight. The government has in the past consistently proven that it can effectively coordinate the delivery of aid at the scale needed in many other parts of Ethiopia and we believe it can do so again. I strongly urge all authorities to do whatever it takes to enable unrestricted and unconditional access to those most in need, regardless of their locations.

The entire aid sector, NRC included, must also recognise our failure to define the scale of the crisis, to respond early, to coordinate and to speak out – all of which has crippled the collective response.

We must all act now and play our part to ensure aid reaches the millions of people suffering in Tigray.”
