0 98

The United Nations Office for Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) said that Sudan continued to receive new refugees from neighboring countries, especially South Sudan, Ethiopia and Eritrea.

In a recent report, OCHA revealed that, since the beginning of 2022 AD, about (30,000) refugees from South Sudan have arrived in Sudan, especially in White Nile State, East Darfur, West Kordofan and South Kordofan.

“Ethiopian refugees also continued to arrive in eastern Sudan and the Blue Nile region, albeit in smaller numbers,” she said. About 59,500 people have crossed the border into Sudan since the start of the crisis in northern Ethiopia in November 2020.

“Due to severe funding shortfalls, the World Food Program in Sudan has had to cut rations for refugees across the country,” she added. “Beginning in July, refugees have received only half of a normal food basket, on an in-kind or cash basis,” she said.
