UM RAKUBA CAMP, Sudan (Reuters) - Ethiopian farmer Berhan Halie came to Sudan 35 years ago to escape hunger.
Ethiopian refugee Berhan Halie, 65, poses for a picture at the Um Rakuba refugee camp which houses refugees fleeing the fighting in the Tigray region, on the Sudan-Ethiopia border, in Sudan, November 29, 2020.
Berhan and his family spent days walking to the border crossing with Sudan, among more than 45,000 who have fled from fighting between the Ethiopian government and rebellious Tigray forces.
After crossing two weeks ago, he was brought by bus to the Um Rakuba camp in Sudan’s Qadarif state -- the same site he came to when fleeing the famine that had ravaged northern Ethiopia in 1985.
Conditions at Um Rakuba are harsh.
