From a staff member of Operation Rescue Adwa
In Adwa, things got really difficult from mid-December onwards. Bombs started falling in the town, as well as in the surrounding area, and many people fled. At first, there was no electricity or water. As time went on, it became even harder as banks, shops and food factories were burnt down and robbed. Operation Rescue was also targeted, but thank God we all are safe. For a whole month, gunshots were heard in the city and I could not move freely because I was often stopped by soldiers when I wanted to go and visit the families and children of Operation Rescue. Now, fortunately, I can say that the vast majority of the children are well, but they still need food and support.
