IOM is gearing up to evacuate Chadians and other third-country nationals (TCNs)stranded at the CAR/Cameroon border for several weeks with little or no assistance.
Since December 2013, IOM has registered 70,913 evacuees who came from the CAR.
16,742 evacuees arrived in N’Djamena, while 54,171 evacuees arrived in the south of Chad. 20% of them have continued their journey to their home communities.
A road convoy with circa 2,000 evacuees on board is expected to arrive in Sido in the coming hours.
