Spokesperson: Chris Lom
The US State Department's Bureau for Population, Refugees and Migration (PRM), has contributed US$ 750,000 to IOM to facilitate the voluntary repatriation of some 3,500 Liberian refugees living in Ghana. It follows an earlier US$ 350,000 PRM contribution.
The US funding will enable IOM to organize buses to transport refugees from the main refugee camp of Buduburam to the Ghanaian capital Accra, from where they will board commercial and IOM charter flights to the Liberian capital, Monrovia.
