STORYLINE
The World Food Programme (WFP) said it was bracing for a potential full scale humanitarian crisis as thousands of people seek refugee in eastern Sudan due to the ongoing fighting in Ethiopia’s Tigray region.

More than 31,000 women, men, and children have crossed the border since 10 November, rapidly overwhelming the humanitarian response capacity on the ground.

WFP said it is providing high energy biscuits and hot meals to new arrivals at the reception centres, while refugees are registered by UNHCR. After that, monthly support is provided in the form of food basket which includes sorghum, lentils, vegetable oil and salt.

The Programme it is using in-country stocks to respond to the Tigray crisis, which is straining the resources for its existing food interventions. WFP stressed that it was facing a funding shortfall of USD 153 million for the next six months (November 2020 to April 2021) to sustain its operation and meet the food needs of most vulnerable people in Sudan.

WFP said it requires USD 20 million to provide food and nutrition assistance to up to 200,000 Ethiopian refugees for six months, USD 3.8 million for the UN Humanitarian Air Service (UNHAS) for Tigray response, and USD 750,000 for road repairs to reach remote areas in which refugees are arriving.
