- Flow Monitoring
Since the beginning of clashes in April in Sudan, over 150,000 people have crossed the border into Chad. IOM estimates that more than 34 775 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 registered 24 004 returnees and observed 31 thirdcountry nationals (from South Sudan, Niger, Ethiopia, the Central African Republic, Burkina Faso, Norway and Nigeria) in 19 locations 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 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.
