Sudan struggles to shelter influx of Ethiopian refugees

Published
Sudanese authorities have opened two camps to cope with the influx of Ethiopian refugees who have started arriving in Sudan for two weeks.

Nearly 40,000 refugees have fled to Sudan altogether following a government offensive on the Tigray People’s Liberation Front.

For some of them, they have experienced life in these camps before.

The United Nations says it expects 200,000 Ethiopian refugees to arrive in Sudan in the coming months amid fighting in Tigray, along with lack of humanitarian access, continues. Sudanese authorities say the camp has a limited capacity and more camps are needed.
