DISEASE OUTBREAK IN ETHIOPIA
An outbreak of Acute Watery Diarrhea (AWD) has broken out in the Afar. Over 2000 people have been infected and 105 lives have already been lost.
FGM and Harmful Practices
It takes a community to create change. Our partners are creating an open dialogue to bring taboo subjects to light and to put a stop to women suffering in silence. To learn more, click here.
Only 1 in 10 women will have their birth attended to by a skilled professional. Help us to ensure that the 9,000 women each year who develop obstetric fistulas return to their families healed, happy and proud - and help us to eradicate it completely by 2020. Find out how...

Here at Ethiopiaid Australia, we're all about enabling people to change their lives.
Ethiopiaid Australia is a not-for-profit charity raising funds for our trusted community partners in Ethiopia. Our approach is different - we form partnerships with grassroots organisations known for their expertise and ambition, who implement approved projects that address maternal health, FGM and women's empowerment, education and poverty reduction. We believe that truly sustainable change should be local, not imported. Ethiopiaid is here to give a voice to these incredible grassroots programs that otherwise would have gone unheard.
