USAID Weekly Wrap-Up

  • The head of USAID’s Humanitarian Assistance Sarah Charles traveled to Ethiopia where she witnessed a deteriorating humanitarian emergency. She called on all parties to cease violence and facilitate unhindered access to allow aid organizations to deliver life-saving assistance.
