STORYLINE
The United Nations refugee agency (UNHCR) said more than 25,000 children, women and men have fled Ethiopia into Sudan in search of safety, overwhelming the current capacity to provide aid.

UNHCR said the worsening crisis in northern Ethiopia due to ongoing clashes between the Ethiopian federal government and Tigray regional forces is driving thousands of people to flee, more than half of them children.

The Agency said the numbers are increasing rapidly, with the majority having crossed into the Hamdayet border point in Kassala State. People are arriving with very few belongings indicating they fled in a hurry. UNHCR and its partners are ramping up assistance, but the numbers of new arrivals are far outpacing the capacity on the ground. UNHCR said the transit centre at Hamdayet border crossing has a capacity to accommodate 300 refugees, but is already overwhelmed with over 6,000 people. Sanitation facilities are insufficient, impacting hygiene.
