"Almost five months after the beginning of the fighting in Tigray, people continue to flee their homes in search of safety. Every day, newly displaced people arrive to the main towns, where they stay with the host communities or in improvised sites, like schools. According to estimates, about one million people are displaced within Tigray region.
Thousands of families were separated when they fled their homes. Even as communication networks are being restored, many people still don’t know what happened to their loved ones. The ICRC works closely with the Ethiopian Red Cross Society and Sudanese Red Crescent Society to restore contact between separated family members. Between November 2020 and February 2021, some 4,400 displaced families and some 13,000 refugees re-established contact through phone calls and “safe and well” messages."
