Ethiopia Weekly Humanitarian Bulletin, 23 December 2013

Key Events

  • IOM continues to face a funding gap to assist the Ethiopians repatriated from Saudi Arabia. Some 144,507 people were so far repatriated, nearly a fivefold increase on the 30,000 people initially expected to return.

  • An estimated 40,000 Kenyans crossed into Ethiopia’s Moyale woredas , fleeing inter-communal conflict in northern Kenya. An Incident Command Post (ICP), led by the DR MFSS, was established to co ordinate the humanitarian response.

  • As the dry season progresses over the next couple of months, water trucking needs will increase in the chronically water-stressed areas of the country.
