    There are more than 62,800 refugees in need ofrelocation from various camps and transit centreswithin Gambella region. ARRA and UNHCR haverequested that all new arrivals from the three entrypoints of Burbiey, Akobo and Pagak be moved toOkugucamp.

Okugo can only accommodate29,000 refugees in addition to the 6,000 already onground. Therefore, the search for a new site withhighergroundintheGambellaRegionisstillontopofthe agenda.
