Agencies struggle to provide aid in Tigray

A number of refugees have been hosted in Sudan even as Sudan prepares to host hundred of thousand others.

Among challenges that the region of Tigray is facing, includes denied entry of food and health supplies. The UN Resident and Humanitarian Co-ordinator for Ethiopia says providing humanitarian assistance had been difficult since the conflict began. the prime minister however states that his government is helping Tigray through the controlled federal army.
