Internally displaced persons in Ethiopia increases by 1 mn
We should act now to avoid any further decline, said Roger Yates.
The number of internally displaced people in Ethiopia increases by 1 million due to the prevalence of inter-communal conflicts, according to the latest accounting released in this capital.
"The escalation of humanitarian hardship due to the aggravation aggravates the situation, especially for the most vulnerable: women, children and the elderly. We should act now to avoid any further decline, "said Roger Yates, regional director of International Plan in Eastern and Southern Africa (Piaom), as per Prensa Latina.
In light of the critical context, aid agencies are calling on donors to urgently call for funds to allow for greater service to communities. Recognizing the government's ongoing peace and reconciliation efforts, international organizations, such as the UN and the African Union, call on the Ethiopian authorities to resolve conflicts between ethnic groups in the affected areas and implement durable solutions to the growing abandonment of places.
The regions that face a more complex panorama are the Nations, Nationalities, and Peoples of the South and Oromia, where thousands require food, shelter, water, and psychosocial support.
