Since the beginning of clashes in April in Sudan, over 180,000 people have crossed the border into Chad. IOM estimates that more than 44 700 of them are Chadian returnees and expects this number to rise to 60,000 in the coming weeks.
In coordination with CNARR and humanitarian officials, IOM has fixed and registered 35 254 returnees and observed 68 third-country nationals (from South Sudan, Niger, Ethiopia, the Central African Republic, Burkina Faso, Norway, Uganda and Nigeria) in 25 localities in three provinces. 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.
IOM conducted post-distribution monitoring exercises in some of the locations targeted for assistance. According to the results, 90% of the beneficiaries said the assistance contributed significantly to meeting their needs. All still have unmet needs after the assistance, mainly food (81%), NFIs (79%), shelter (39%), health (27%).
IOM works with a range of operational partners in the returnee response including the Government of Chad, UNHCR, LWF, PUI, UNICEF, MSF, UNFPA, ICRC, IRC, the Chadian Red Cross and WFP
