The UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR) and the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) have agreed to enhance their partnership in responding to needs of refugees and host communities in Ethiopia.
Ethiopia currently hosts more than half-a-million refugees most of whom are children under 18.
According to reports, Ethiopia had seen a new influx of South Sudanese refugees fleeing renewed violence and food shortage.
Representatives of UNHCR and UNICEF on Friday, signed the agreement that outlines key areas of collaboration in child protection, education, health and nutrition, as well as water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH).
The agreement will end in August 2020.
