EDTF Medical Relief Fund

We have established a Medical Relief Fund in recognition of the current challenge medical facilities in Ethiopia are facing due to the shortage of life saving medical supplies. Using the success of our COVID-19 response as a blue print, we aim to provide these supplies and meet the current critical need in the Health Sector. We have committed $500,000 from available funds and we have launched this fundraising campaign with the hope of raising it to $1,000,000. Donate to Medical Relief Fund
