U.S. and E.U. envoys have urged Ethiopia’s government to resume electricity and banking services in the Tigray region. Civil war has raged for months, displacing over 2 million people. Tigrayans have dealt with basic food shortages since June 2021.
The actual fighting has died down since a humanitarian ceasefire in March. However, Eric Foley with The Voice of the Martyrs Korea says it’s an uneasy peace. “A comparison between North and South Korea is, I think, a good one. In North and South Korea, the war never ended. There is simply an armistice in place. But the two nations are technically at war.”
Foley keeps in contact with Tigrayan Christians. He tells the stories of two different men, both refugees from the Tigray region. “I was talking with Pastor T., And he was talking about a father who committed suicide this past week because he couldn’t feed his kids. The situation in Tigray is so difficult in terms of the availability of food.”
