Burundi refugees in Tanzania: Child protection
Description: Ines is one of 280 000 refugees that have fled Burundi and one of 11 million refugee children worldwide. All on her own, Ines followed other people going to Tanzania. Since the pre-election dispute and ensuing violence in April 2015, people have continued to leave Burundi in their hundreds. Many of them are unaccompanied children like Ines. Wary at first, Ines was placed with a foster mother in one of the refugee camps and seems to be thriving. In the mornings, she goes to Plan International’s child-friendly space which is supported by the European Commission. Here, Ines can play, dance and talk to a counselor in a safe environment. In the afternoons she goes to school. As there are so few schools in the camps, the Commission has also allocated funds for the construction of more classrooms. Video by European Commission

Burundi refugees in Tanzania: Vox Pop
Description: Being a humanitarian is often a tough job, but also a very rewarding one. In the Burundian refugee camps in Tanzania, EU humanitarian aid is channelled through partners who work tirelessly to get refugees, who arrive with practically nothing, the assistance they need. This video is a tribute to our partners and the staff in the field. We asked them about what keeps them going and their proudest achievement. The European Commission's Civil Protection and Humanitarian Aid Operations work with over 200 partner organisations throughout the world, ranging from non-governmental organisations and United Nations agencies to the Red Cross movement.

Burundi refugees in Tanzania: Mud Bricks
Description: Having a roof over your head is far from a luxury in western Tanzania, where the dry season scatters dust everywhere and the rainy season unleashes destructive torrential rains. This is why Clotilde, who had been living a tent for a year with her four children, was so happy when the Danish Refugee Council helped her move into a small brick house. Clotilde is a refugee from Burundi. Her husband was killed during the violence that broke out in their nearby town. Like other single mothers, she is particularly vulnerable in a camp of over 50 000 people. With the rainy season fast approaching, the Danish Refugee Council and the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR) are working against the clock to finish 10 000 brick shelters that are funded by the European Commission.

Burundian refugees restore contact with their families
Description: Since the Burundi crisis began in 2015, more than 250,000 people have fled to the neighbouring countries of Rwanda, Tanzania, Democratic Republic of the Congo and Uganda. Many families were split up as they fled. Now, people live with the terror of what might have happened to their relatives. The ICRC is working with national Red Cross Societies to offer innovative ways of helping refugee families get back in touch, such as SIM cards for their mobile phones. AV511

Des réfugiés burundais reprennent contact avec leurs proches
Description: Depuis le début de la crise au Burundi en avril 2015, plus de 250 000 personnes ont fui vers le Rwanda, la Tanzanie, la République démocratique du Congo et l’Ouganda. Durant leur fuite, de nombreuses familles ont été séparées et beaucoup ont alors perdu la trace de leurs proches. Sans nouvelles, ils vivent désormais dans l’angoisse de ce qui a pu arriver. Pour faciliter le rétablissement du contact entre les membres de familles séparées, le CICR, en collaboration avec les Sociétés nationales de la Croix-Rouge sur place, a activé son réseau et aussi proposé des solutions innovantes aux réfugiés, comme par exemple la distribution de cartes SIM et de recharges pour leurs téléphones portables.

One Region, 3 Million Refugees, Multiple Crises
Description: “Mass movement of people, be it refugees or people fleeing within their own countries, has become the new defining reality of the 21st century. The international humanitarian system is all too often the only safety net that exists for people fleeing wars. It has to be funded on a scale that’s realistic and commensurate with today’s immense challenges. It is clear that with the present level of resources, we are not able to provide even the very minimum in both core protection and life-saving assistance.”​ - UN High Commissioner for Refugees António Guterres East Africa is now home to nearly 3 million refugees - and people keep coming.The world must pay more attention.
