After enduring more than a week of violent clashes between federal and regional forces, civilians in the Tigray region of Ethiopia are in crisis. Communication networks are down, banking services are halted, roads are blocked and there are shortages of basic supplies. Fearing for their lives and the lives of their families, thousands of children, women and men have been forced to flee into Sudan.
UNHCR urgently need to scale up supplies so that they are ready to respond as the situation worsens.
More than 30,000 refugees have arrived in Sudan exhausted and scared and are being sheltered in transit centers near the border. Water and meals are being provided and UNHCR and the Sudanese authorities are working around the clock to set up a new refugee site to shelter them.
Your donation will allow UNHCR to continue to provide urgent, lifesaving help to refugees.
