Luanda - Angolan government is preparing for the creation of centre to accommodate refugees and asylum seekers with a view to ensuring more humanised treatment to migrants, the director of Foreigners and Migration Service (SME) has said.
Gil Famoso said so to the press on Wednesday at the end of 7th Ordinary Session of Cabinet Council.
To comply with this measure, the Wednesday session approved the regulations for the creation of the said centre.
There is a shortage of classrooms to accommodate both refugee and host community students. More trained teachers, sanitation facilities, equipment, and materials are urgently needed.
Only 39 per cent of required maize meal and 28 per cent of the usual amount of pulses will be distributed in August due to funding shortage.
