The conflict that erupted around the borders of Melekoza and Basketo Special woreda or the Gamo Gofa zone has left more than 37,000 people in need of urgent humanitarian assistance, UNOCHA said.

“Ethnic basketos displaced from 11 kebel Melekoza woreda are now sheltered in six collective centers in Basketo Special Woreda,” UNOCHA said further warning: “IDPs are deeply concerned about the lack of shelter materials amid impending heavy rainfall in the area. ”

So far, the National Disaster Risk Management Commission (NDRMC) has sent around 4,233 quintals in food packages, targeting around 24,870 beneficiaries.

Background

The conflict started in Melokoza Woreda of the Gamo Goffa zone on September 23, 2018, when ethnic Baskets in 11 kebeles in Melokoza Woreda requested to be part of Basketo Special Woreda, against which Melokoza Woreda opposed.

The conflict resulted in the loss of lives and property. Non-food items and shelter materials were also distributed to the displaced, although they were not sufficient. “Shelter and non-food items materials are priority needs for the displaced.”
