Providing refuge for Sudanese refugees seeking safety in Chad

Region: Africa
Country: Chad
Year: 2023
Shelter: RHU
Project size: 1001-5000
Modality: Temporary shelter
Sector: Shelter
Partner: United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees
Support: Capacity Building

Responding to urgent needs in Sudan and surrounding countries following the outbreak of violence, IKEA Foundation provided funding for 3,000 shelters to support the growing displaced population.

By the fourth month of the conflict, over 350,000 Sudanese had crossed the border seeking refuge in Chad. Confronted with a sudden flow of Sudanese refugees who were settling at the border, still vulnerable to volatility, UNHCR supported the Chadian government and local authorities to relocate refugees and supply critical aid.

Among new camps established for Sudanese refugees, include the Arkoum camp in the Ouaddaï province of Chad, where UNHCR installed RHUs as temporary shelters. By August 2023, Arkoum has been host to some 23,000 Sudanese refugees, who were relocated from the border.
