As you know, Ethiopian refugees are enduring very deplorable conditions in several countries. Our refugees in Yemen say they are treated like a “trash,” as are those in Libya prisons. Many die on the way as they escaped political persecution or the grinding poverty in our country. To raise global awareness over the plight of Ethiopian refugees, concerned Ethiopians have launched Save Ethiopian Refugee International (SERI).

SERI has now launched a petition drive to persuade UNHCR to treat Ethiopian refugees as fellow human beings, and give them due legal protection. Please join me in this noble drive by giving prominence to the link so that as many Ethiopians as possible would sign the document.

The link is: http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/save_ethiopian_refugees/
A few important programs are coming up, and I will keep you updated.

Warmest regards,

Abebe Belew*
Project Director
Save Ethiopian Refugee International (SERI)
