HelpAge
Non-governmental Organization based in United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland

HelpAge International (HelpAge) is a global network of non-governmental organisations that helps older people claim their rights, challenge discrimination and overcome poverty, so that they can lead dignified, secure, active and healthy lives.

Responses to political and natural emergencies are managed either through the local office supported by the Humanitarian Team (HuT) or by HuT directly (the first applies in this case). These may be both “rapid onset” and long term. HelpAge International participates in most UK Disaster Emergency Committee (DEC) responses to major emergencies through the membership of Age International.

INTRODUCTION AND BACKGROUND

Tanzania has been a consistent and generous host to millions of refugees over the years. The country has supported UNHCR and partners in all three durable solutions - from voluntary repatriation to countries of origin, resettlement to other countries willing to share the burden of displacement, to the unprecedented gift of citizenship for almost 200,000 former 1972 Burundian refugees. The test of time did not weaken the generosity; when the ongoing political tension in Burundi caused thousands of Burundians to flee to Tanzania.

HelpAge International is very concerned about the situation of older people after new outbreaks of violence and internal displacement in South Sudan.

Fresh fighting broke out in the capital Juba on 8 July, as the country marked its fifth independence day. The violence left as many as 42,000 people internally displaced in different parts of the city (350kb - PDF), with a number attempting to cross over to neighbouring Uganda. Of these, some 12,800 remain displaced in and around Juba.
