In the mid-2000s ERHEA took the initiative to group together the resources of the various websites in order to make them more easily accessible to the public and thereby facilitate public awareness of the gross human rights violations being perpetrated in Eritrea. Since then, EHREA has built up a large resource that has been drawn upon by interested people and organisations from every part of the world.

It is not often Eritrea gets a mention in the news.

Last week, Abrehale Misghina, a 28-year-old Eritrean refugee, committed suicide in broad daylight in a public park in Tel Aviv. He had snatched a mobile phone from a young boy and, after a desperate attempt to make a call, collapsed in tears. He then returned the phone to its owner, dragged a dustbin to a nearby tree, climbed on top of it, threw a rope over a branch, placed a noose around his neck and hanged himself.
