Overview

02/10/2020

Chad hosts around 368,000 Sudanese refugees from Darfur. Most of the refugees are living in  refugee camps and host communities in the regions of Ennedi-Est, Wadi Fira, Ouaddai and Sila, all near Chad’s border with Sudan.? The majority of the refugees arrived in Chad following escalation of the Darfur crisis in 2003-04, though continuing violence has led to periodic new waves of arrivals.?

Even though many Darfur refugees have been in Chad for more than a decade, the overall level of humanitarian needs remains very high. Among refugees in camps, access to income generating opportunities is generally very low, which plays a role in driving needs for support for food security and livelihoods.  ? Access to WASH and health services is  limited, partially as a result of outdated infrastructure in camps, often more than 15 years old. ?In refugee-hosting regions of eastern Chad, the rate of access to potable water is estimated to be only about 50%. ?  Humanitarian needs have been negatively impacted by significant funding shortfalls and a declining level of food assistance provided to refugees from Darfur in recent years.?
