TRIGGER WARNING: This article contains explicit content describing violence, war crimes and extreme suffering.

Schools have long closed and the whereabouts of these children is currently unknown as Tigray continues to endure an atrocious war while being cut off from the rest of the world. Our partners have continued to strive to offer food aid and vital assistance to internally displaced people on our behalf, but such activity is becoming impossible because of the ongoing blockade and lack of resources.

This heartbreaking account describes the situation as it is today.
