Similarly, 3, 107 Eritrean, and more than 1,000 Somali and Sudanese refuges were repatriated to the United States and other third country-resettlements in one year alone.

Mogadishu,(Sunatimes.com) With the prolonged wars in Somalia uprooting more civilians, The Administration for Refugee and Returnee Affairs (ARRA) said that the follow of Somali refugees in Ethiopia is exceedingly growing.

Ethiopia is currently hosting more than 150, 000 refugees, as more than twelve hundred Somali refugees enter Ethiopia monthly.

According to a statement ARRA sent to WIC in connection with this year’s World Refugee Day, Ethiopia is currently hosting 70, 491 Somali, 50, 718 Eritrean and 24, 692 Sudanese refugees in 12 refugee camps.

The number of refugees has increased to 150, 366 now from 110,000 last year due to massive influx of refugees from the neighboring countries.

Each month 2,000 Eritreans and 1,250 Somali refugees are crossing the border into Ethiopia to seek refuge, it said.

Ethiopia has opened additional two camps for Somali and Eritrean refugees this fiscal year, the statement said, adding the government in close collaboration with the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) and World Food Programme (WFP) is offering protection for the refugees.

Similarly, 3, 107 Eritrean, and more than 1,000 Somali and Sudanese refuges were repatriated to the United States and other third country-resettlements in one year alone.

According to the statement, this year’s World Refugee Day will be observed under the theme, "They took my home but they can’t take my future."

In Ethiopia, the day will be marked in Addis Ababa and all the 14 refugee camps located in various parts of the country in the presence of refugees, NGOs, ambassadors, UN officials, religious leaders, among others.

There are more than 43 million uprooted people around the world, the statement said.
