Current Operations
Food Assistance for Somali, Eritrean and Sudanese Refugees

This PRRO has been modified as per Budget Revision 4 (see below).

This budget revision is to adjust the land transport, handling and storage (LTSH) budget for protracted relief and recovery operation (PRRO) 200365 “Food Assistance to Somali, Eritrean and Sudanese refugees”. The LTSH rate increases from US$151.42/mt to US$221.05/mt, with the total LTSH costs increasing by US$19.1 million and indirect support costs (ISC) by US$1.33 million.

Ethiopia has been  hosting refugees from neighbouring countries for three decades. Civil conflict and drought-induced famine remain the principal factors that drive refugees into Ethiopia. Over the past three years the number of refugees needing food assistance has increased threefold, to 420,000, and influxes of refugees are expected to continue. Most of the refugees are from Somalia, but there are also large numbers of Sudanese and Eritreans.
