In the past 48 hours, an estimated arrivals of at least 15,000 have crossed into Chad from El Geneina in West Darfur, Sudan, to seek refuge in the locality of Adre, in the Eastern Chadian province of Ouaddai due the significant deterioration of the security situation and steep uptake in violence. IOM received estimates that 3,000 of the arrivals are Chadian returnees. Registration is ongoing and being conducted jointly with CNARR and UNHCR. At the Lycée Issakha Haroun, IOM has already fixed 1 567 individuals. An additional 150 people found refuge in the second site of Noura Alhouda. Many displaced persons have been injured and are in immediate need of medical attention as the capacity of the nearest hospital is being stretched thin. Other reported immediate needs include food and WASH. Many unaccompanied children have also been reported.
