WFP requires USD45 million for the next six months to meet the needs of all refugees in Ethiopia, Kenya, Sudan and Uganda.
The rate of new arrivals has recently slowed in Uganda, Kenya and Ethiopia but is subject to periodic spikes. However, renewed fighting in Upper Nile State has resulted in an increased number of refugees crossing into Sudan. About 5,000 people crossed into Sudan on 13 April alone.
Relocation of refugees to more appropriate sites is ongoing in Ethiopia and Sudan.
As per the inter agency regional refugee response plan, WFP provides hot meals at reception centers and monthly family rations to those who have resettled in the camps. High energy biscuits are provided at the border points for immediate relief. In addition, nutrition activities are ongoing to rehabilitate those malnourished and prevent further deterioration of malnutrition levels.
