Appeal Target : US$ 2,834,961
Geneva, December 20, 1996

Dear Friends, There could not be a more joyful Christmas gift than the homecoming of several hundred thousand Rwandans -- refugees for over 2 years now.

Finally, there may be some chance for healing, a process which could not even begin while the majority of the refugees remained in exile.

Following are proposals from ACT members who foresee the need to welcome them in a very concrete way.

We thank you in advance for your support.

GROZNY, CHECHNYA -- In Chechnya, treating guests well is considered a matter of honor. So shame and disgust have been the reaction of most people here to Tuesday's nighttime attack on a hospital outside Grozny that left six Red Cross workers dead and another wounded.

"The people who did this did not just kill our friends," says one grief-stricken Chechen nurse who works at the hospital in Noviye Atagi where the murders took place.

Tanzania
Five refugee camps in Karagwe district are reported to be empty. Any remaining refugees in the camps this morning will now have to walk to the Rusumo border with Rwanda; a distance of some 160km. Only four-five way- stations have been established along the Karagwe-Ngara route. SCF UK does not believe this is adequate to meet the refugees' needs as reports from Benaco (Ngara) suggest that those refugees arriving from Karagwe are in poor condition.
