Refugees From Burundi in Tanazania
$30 To Provide A Kitchen Set To Refugees From Burundi
UNHCR and its partners are working together every day to aid and protect Burundi’s refugees in Tanzania, Rwanda, the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), Uganda and other nearby countries. Together, we are helping families reunite with lost loved ones and training camp community workers to spot signs of sexual exploitation and abuse. We are helping mothers give birth in proper health facilities and enlisting water engineers to drill new boreholes to supply water for refugees.
Nevertheless, the 2017 multi-agency budget for the Burundi situation was only 21 per cent funded and the 2018 plan is currently funded at only 6 percent. This dramatic shortfall severely hinders our ability to provide minimum services needed.’
As a result, Burundian refugees in Tanzania, Rwanda and the DRC arrive to find camps full and only temporary shelters available. Health centres are struggling to cope with huge numbers of patients. Education is very basic, and children lack sufficient learning materials; hundreds of children in Tanzania attend classes under trees.
