Aftermath Of War In Amhara Region's Historical Wollo Province

DESSIE, ETHIOPIA - JANUARY 11: A view of the ransacked "Skill Lab" at Wollo University on January 11, 2022 in Dessie, Ethiopia. The lab was used by students of medicine who would learn on anatomically correct models in the course of their studies in the various fields of medicine. According to Dr. Mengesha Ayene, President of Wollo University the TPLF looted specific materials and pharmaceuticals and technical infrastructure such as microscopes and high end laboratory equipment and shipped them back to Tigray. The TPLF moved on the city of Dessie around October 30, 2021, shelling the Wollo University campus which lay on the outskirts of the city causing a complete evacuation of the campus. Several buildings were severely damaged or destroyed during the course of the shelling. Upon entering the campus the TPLF looted the university of every computer, every piece of major medical and science related lab equipment and data technology as well as classroom teaching tools and infrastructure. What ever was not removed and taken back to Tigray was deliberately destroyed. The Dessie campus of Wollo University suffered six billion Ethiopian birr ($120,928,125 million USD) worth of damage. All three campuses of Wollo University suffered combined damages of over eleven billion Ethiopian birr ($239,840,782 million USD). (Photo by J. Countess/Getty Images)
