  10. Why are so many Eritreans leaving the motherland to a refugee camp?
    15,000 in seven month?????

    August 19, 2014 (UNHCR) –
    The UN refugee agency announced on Tuesday that Ethiopia has overtaken Kenya to become the largest refugee-hosting country in Africa, sheltering 629,718 refugees as of the end of July. Kenya, in comparison,is host to 575,334 registered refugees and asylum-seekers.

    The main factor in the increased numbers is the conflict in South Sudan,
    which erupted in mid-December last year and has sent 188,000 refugees into Ethiopia since the beginning of 2014. There are at present 247,000 South Sudanese refugees in the country, making them the largest refugee population.

    They are followed by Somalis (245,000) and Eritreans (99,000). Over the last seven months, nearly 15,000 Eritreans and more than 3,000 Somalis also arrived in Ethiopia.

    “Together with the Ethiopian government and other partners, we are providing protection and humanitarian aid in 23 refugee camps and five transit sites around the country,” UNHCR spokesman Adrian Edwards told reporters in Geneva.

    Three of the camps and three transit sites are new – having been opened since the beginning of the year to handle the growing number of refugees fleeing the fighting in South Sudan. All three camps are at capacity and UNHCR is developing two more. While refugees wait to be moved to the new camps, more than 18,000 are sheltered in three temporary sites in Pagak, Pamdong and Matar in the western region of Gambella.

    However, in recent weeks heavy rain has flooded these three low-lying sites, as well as Leitchuor Camp, where the situation is most serious. Some 10,000 refugees – more than a fifth of Leitchuor’s population of 47,600 – have been hit by flooding.

    Many tents and shelters are under water and latrines have collapsed. This is
    a serious health concern and threatens to undermine gains made in
    preventing the outbreak of water-borne diseases. Refugees have pitched
    tents on higher camp roads.

    Edwards said that with the rainy season set to last until October, “We
    are working with our partners to drain the accumulated rainwater into a
    nearby small stream as quickly as possible. We are also speeding up
    development of the new Nip Nip camp-some three kilometres from
    Leitchuor. It will be able to accommodate 20,000 refugees.”

    the meantime, the refugee agency is moving affected refugees from the
    roadside to drier spots of the camp and sending relief items to the area
    to be distributed to refugees who have lost their meagre belongings in
    the floods.

    Most of the Gambella region is at a low elevation and flood-prone. UNHCR continues
    to work with the government at the federal and regional level to
    identify additional sites that are less susceptible to flooding.

    Sudan’s crisis has caused massive displacement internally and into
    neighbouring countries. As of mid-August, 1.861 million South Sudanese
    had been forcibly displaced, of whom almost 1.3 million are internally
    displaced and more than 575,000 were refugees in neighbouring countries.
    South Sudan is also continuing to host some 243,000 refugees, the
    majority from Sudan.

  11. Wedi agame
    If it benefit us using other airlines service better than having our own, then there is no need for our own airlines.

  12. wedi agame ...
    A natural for wedi agame to think is begging.
    Sorry, It is not an Eritrean vocabulary.

  13. The minor regime in ethiopia not only expels our compatriots but even other ethiopian senior staff..
