A month after the start of violence in Sudan, more than 76,000 displaced people have crossed the border into Chad (IOM). IOM estimates that over than 16,000 of them are Chadian returnees and expects this number to rise to 25,000 in the coming weeks.
Many returnees are waiting for their family members to join them or are hoping to return to Sudan to recover their belongings.
Most of the returnees are currently residing in spontaneous locations near the border and are in urgent need of essential goods and services such as food, water, sanitation and hygiene, shelter, household items, health, and protection. In addition, the resources provided by host communities are quickly drying outnearly. . Finally, the beginning of the rainy season is threatening to hinder the access of humanitarian actors to vulnerable populations.
