Opera soprano and UNHCR ambassador Barbara Hendricks is currently in Ethiopia to raise awareness of the 140,000 refugees in the country.

“I hope my visit can increase awareness of this often forgotten refugee situation,” said Hendricks. “In my 24 years working on behalf of UNHCR I have rarely come across such powerful stories as I heard here in the camps here.”

Most of the refugees – around 80,000 – have escaped from violence in Somalia. However, Ethiopia struggles to provide the fresh water, health care and necessities of life for the refugees.
