Crisis in Chad: Thousands Displaced by Violence in Darfur
17 years after the Darfur Genocide began, the situation is Darfur is still particularly dire.
More than 11,000 people have been forced to flee their homes in El Geneina, Sudan into neighbouring Chad following fresh clashes in Darfur. The majority of these refugees were already Internally Displaced Peoples (IDPs) living in displacement camps, schools and mosques in the region. Chad is already currently hosting 128,000 Sudanese refugees in the border province of Ouaddaï. UNHCR expects another 30,000 Sudanese refugees to arrive in Chad the coming weeks as clashes are expected to continue. Sudanese refugee families are currently living in scattered open-aired shelters in villages along the Chadian-Sudanese border with little to no protection. UNHCR needs your support to help with the immediate humanitarian crises in Chad and help provide Sudanese refugees with shelter and protection.
Due to escalating conflict since January 2020, conditions in Darfur are now extremely dangerous and thousands of families are fleeing to Chad.
