UNHCR urges to support humanitarian actions in Ethiopia


UNHCR urges to support humanitarian actions in Ethiopia

Addis Ababa, Nov 22 (Prensa Latina) The UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) on Tuesday urged international institutions to complement government efforts in confronting the humanitarian crisis in northern Ethiopia.

A report by Fana Broadcasting Corporate television revealed that UNHCR’s representative in Ethiopia Mamadou Dian Balde urged UN agencies and partners but also addressed the appeal to all developed nations and regional organizations.

Many citizens required assistance to meet basic needs, and major reconstruction work is urgently needed.

The government is making significant efforts, but needs help to speed up humanitarian and recovery operations, Balde stated.

Health, education, housing, water and sanitation needs of residents in the border areas of Tigray, Afar and Amhara states are enormous and require our attention, he said.

Balde explained that UNHCR in charge of protecting refugees and displaced people ‘works so close with federal authorities and maintains teams in several cities in the three regions’.

UNHCR is ready to increase aid and support the government’s efforts, but needs the support of the international community, he reiterated.

We support the African Union-led peace process.
