STORYLINE:

Tunaydbah refugee settlement in East Sudan houses about 20,000 Ethiopian refugees who fled conflict in Ethiopia’s Tigray region. Many arrived with little more than the clothes on their backs and are now grappling with life in the new settlement where temperatures can reach as high as 45 degrees Celsius.

SOUNDBITE (English) Akaran Napakiro, Field Officer, UNHCR Sudan:
“As you can see the area is just a bare plain.”

SOUNDBITE (English) Akaran Napakiro, Field Officer, UNHCR Sudan:
“The population here is around 20,000 who have come here and about 60 per cent are youth and children.”

Extreme weather patterns have left both refugees and host communities increasingly vulnerable. Rain and strong winds recently destroyed some shelters and latrines and resulted in flooding in some areas of the settlement. The rainy season is making access to the camp even more difficult as roads are often impassable with the nearest town about 136 kilometres away. Last year, floods and heavy rains wreaked havoc across Sudan displacing hundreds of thousands of people.

UNHCR and partners are providing environmentally friendly solutions to mitigate the impact of extreme weather in the refugee settlement. They provide water, food, shelter, and clean energy solutions.

SOUNDBITE (English) Akaran Napakiro, Field Officer, UNHCR Sudan:
“The refugees have received energy cooking stoves which they are using right now and cutting down the cost of energy.”

SOUNDBITE (English) Akaran Napakiro, Field Officer, UNHCR Sudan:
“We’ve also provided solar lights, solar lamps so that refugees have lighting in the night.”

They are also working to shield refugees from the risk of flooding as the rainy season begins.

“Measures are there to ensure that we put the canals to avert the water away from the population.”

“We want to combine all these efforts to ensure that refugees are ready for the floods and to ensure that we prevent other problems that come along with the floods like cholera.”

Sudan currently hosts over one million refugees and asylum seekers, including tens of thousands of Ethiopians who fled Tigray and more than two million Sudanese who are internally displaced.
