Popular singer, The Weeknd, will be donating $1million (Over 450 million Naira) to Ethiopians amid the five months old war in the country.

This isn’t the first time The Weeknd has contributed to a cause as he donated $300,000 to the global Aid for Lebanon campaign last August to help victims of an explosion in Beirut that killed over 200 people. He also donated $500,000 to racial justice groups: the Black Lives Matter Global Network, Colin Kaepernick’s Know Your Rights Camp and the National Bail Out Collective following the killing of George Floyd.

The singer-songwriter, whose parents are from Ethiopia and whose real name is Abel Makkonen Tesfaye, said that he will donate to Ethiopian relief efforts through the UN World Food Programme.

Thousands of civilians are believed to have been killed, raped and abused during the course of Ethiopia’s war with the Tigray region of the country.

There have been reports that Ethiopian soldiers executed unarmed men in Tigray, though Ethiopia’s government has dismissed evidence of these claims.

The UN announced on March 25 that the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights and the Ethiopian Human Rights Commission would launch a joint investigation into possible crimes

“My heart breaks for my people of Ethiopia as innocent civilians ranging from small children to the elderly are being senselessly murdered and entire villages are being displaced out of fear and destruction,” The Weeknd, said on his Instagram and Twitter accounts on Sunday April 4.

“I will be donating $1 million to provide 2 million meals through the United Nations World Food Programme and encourage those who can to please give as well.”
