Ethiopia Hosts World's Second Largest Refugee Complex

UNHCR reports that the refugee complex near Dollo Ado in the southeastern corner of Ethiopia has now become the world's second largest encampment of refugees after the Dadaab camp in neighboring Kenya. More than 170,000 Somali refugees now live in a series of camps in the vicinity of Dollo Ado.

In addition to Somali refugees, Ethiopia also hosts more than 91,000 Sudanese and almost 61,000 Eritrean refugees. Ethiopia has historically been welcoming to refugees from neighboring countries.
