Oromo Relief Association UK

The suffering of the Oromo people is one of Africa’s most under-reported problems. The largest ethnic group (30 million) in Ethiopia, hundreds of thousands of Oromo have been made refugees by famine and political persecution. Our aim is their relief and support.

We raise funds for Oromo refugees in Africa, especially Sudan, Eritrea and Kenya, e. G. For food and medical supplies In the UK we operate a mother-tongue advice and signposting service for Oromo refugees and asylum seekers, helping them with welfare benefits, immigration, housing and other problems. We are particularly concerned with young people; we aim to help them become well-integrated British citizens while maintaining their own culture and identity.
