Document Language: English
Following the lift of the food pause by USAID on 29 September, UNHCR, WFP and its Cooperating Partner: and Ethiopia’s Refugees and Returnees Service (RRS) jointly prepared for the food distributions in all refugee camps and sites in Ethiopia. This was conducted as per the segregated roles in the new Memorandum of Understanding signed by RRS, UNHCR and WFP. Across Ethiopia there are 329 refugee camps, settlements and sites, which include two additional sites for new arrivals, hosting 946,682 refugees, with some 878,320 being dependent on food assistance. As of 30 October, out of the planned 11,300 Metric Tons (MT) of food, about 10,580 MT has been dispatched across all regions with 69 percent delivered at camp sites. There are seven camps in Benishangul Gumuz and Somali (Dollo) which are yet to receive their deliveries as delays were caused from insecurity and/or unfavorable road conditions.
