Weekly Humanitarian Highlights In Ethiopia, 23 December 2013

Key Events

 IOM continues to face a funding gap to assist the Ethiopians repatriated from Saudi Arabia. Some 144,507 people were so far repatriated, nearly a fivefold increase on the 30,000 people initially expected to return.

 An estimated 40,000 Kenyans crossed into Ethiopia’s Moyale woredas, fleeing inter-communal conflict in northern Kenya. An Incident Command Post (ICP), led by the DRMFSS, was established to coordinate the humanitarian response.

 As the dry season progresses over the next couple of months, water trucking needs will increase in the chronically water-stressed areas of the country.
