IOM - UN Migration is appealing to the international community for USD 50 million to provide #humanitarian and development assistance to 1,504,905 people in need across #Ethiopia.
The appeal covers IOM’s activities under the Humanitarian Response Plan (HRP), which include Displacement Tracking Matrix, Shelter/non-food items & Cluster Coordination, Water, Sanitation and Hygiene, Site Management Support, Rapid Response Fund, Protection, Mental Health & Psychosocial Support, Refugee Movements, Refugee Shelter and Wash and Durable Solutions.
In accordance with the HRP, the Government of Ethiopia’s (GoE) National Disaster Risk Management Commission (NDRMC) and the Humanitarian Coordinator estimates that a total of 8.86 million people will need humanitarian assistance throughout the country.
Furthermore, Ethiopia continues to be the second largest refugee-hosting country in Africa. It is projected that Ethiopia will host 860,000 refugees by the end of 2020, mostly from South Sudan, Eritrea and Somalia. Transportation of newly arrived refugees from border entry points remains critical, as well as the provision of shelter, WASH and livelihood support.
