Description : “It was harvest season. I was in my sorghum field when the men arrived. I saw the one who shot me,” he says. His wife, 23, found him wounded and assisted him. With their 2-year-old daughter, they fled in a small cart with their donkeys across the border. Upon their arrival to Sudan, the Sudanese Red Crescent took care of him, and he was taken to Hashaba hospital.

Hundreds of Ethiopian refugees continue to arrive in Sudan each day. They are exhausted and scared, and come with little more than just the clothes on their backs. Local Sudanese communities have shown incredible solidarity in sharing what resources they have with them as authorities and aid organisations work to scale up services like food, shelter, water and medical care.
Despite lacking so many basic necessities, many refugees have an even more urgent concern: reaching their loved ones to know if they are safe and well. Many were separated from their family members in the chaos of fleeing their homes, while others have been cut-off from contacting relatives because phone and internet lines remain down across part of Tigray State.
Together with the Sudanese Red Crescent, the ICRC has set up services in three different sites near the border to help people get in touch with their loved ones through phone calls and messages. The Sudanese Red Crescent is also providing medical care to refugees.
