UN Registers More Than 1,000 Sudanese Refugee Families In Chad

More than 1,000 families have been registered to enter Chad from neighboring Sudan where an armed conflict is in progress, according to Laura Lo Castro, Chadian representative of UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency.

“Influx of Sudanese refugees in eastern Chad. UNHCR Chad and its partners began preliminary registration (fixing) on April 25. 1,053 refugee families were registered, and 102 families of Chadian returnees were identified,’’ Castro said in a tweet on Thursday.

Castro had earlier estimated that between 10,000 and 20,000 people from troubled Sudan have fled to Chad and stated that a joint mission conducted with the World Food Programme, UNHCR, the UN Children’s Fund, and Chad’s national commission in charge of refugees was working to “assess urgent needs and agree on a response plan.’’

The UN had earlier warned that the new arrivals will be entering a situation marked by “soaring’’ humanitarian needs and “chronic’’ underfunding, because “there was no funding for food assistance beyond this coming May” in Chad.
