Click here to see the numbers and origins of refugees hosted by Chad.
As UNHCR statistics generally rely on data from host countries, statistics on refugees alone can give an insufficient account of refugee numbers, as some host countries will not grant refugee status to certain groups. Including statistics for individuals in refugee-like situations is an attempt to account for unrecognised refugees and does not include internally displaced persons. Statistics for stateless refugees are included if available.
Since information from Chad is so scarce we are providing the UNHCR Farchana office email: firstname.lastname@example.org; the Farchana office has the responsibility of three camps: Tredjing, Bredjing and Farchana for the Sudanese refugees.

Chad Relief Foundation (CRF)
The Chad Relief Foundation (CRF) was initiated in April, 2007 by a group of people in Santa Barbara, California dedicated to improving the lives and prospects of the people of south Chad, with particular attention to the 70,000 refugees from the Central African Republic living in camps outside of Goré, Maro and Haraze. These are the forgotten refugees for whom there is no media attention, celebrity presence or geopolitical significance. CRF has funded projects in the areas of health, recreation, education and housing. CRF does not provide legal assistance.
