In November 2020, following presidential elections in Ivory Coast, the Northern and southern parts of Liberia received thousands of Ivorians refugees fleeing clashes between opposition and pro-government supporters in Ivory Coast.
To date approximately 20,651 Ivorian refugees have fled to Liberia according to reports from UNHCR and Liberia Refugees Repatriation and Resettlement Commission.
The refugees have found themselves in a desperate situation with many unmet vital humanitarian needs such as:
- Safe drinking water
- Health services
- Food and non-food items
ACT member in Liberia, Lutheran Development Services are planning to respond to the refugees in the sectors of non food items, food assistance, WASH and prevention of the spread of COVID-19.
