Kantande underscores refugee registration as the prerogative and the inalienable duty of the Government of Uganda
KAMPALA, Uganda (UNHCR)—UNHCR Representative in Uganda, Bornwell Kantande, has praised the collaboration between registration teams from the Office of the Prime Minister and UNHCR as the rollout of the countrywide verification of refugees takes effect.
Mauritania hosts over 2,000 urban refugees and asylumseekers and more than 53,000 Malian refugees in Mbera, a camp established in 2012 in the arid south-eastern region close to the Malian border.
Despite the conclusion of a peace agreement in 2015, large-scale returns of Malian refugees are not expected due to persistent violence in northern Mali. In February alone, 1,898 new arrivals were registered in Mbera.
As the situation in northern Mali continues to be unstable, Mauritania struggles to cope with the growing needs of new refugees and the vulnerable host communities.

Over 15,000 DR Congolese refugees have fled their country following violent conflicts between Government soldiers and rebel groups. The refugees are currently hosted at newly opened Kenani transit centre and Mantapala refugee settlement in Nchelenge district, North of Zambia. The refugees are facing unique protection risks as a result of insecure shelter provisions, broken community structures, insufficient food, water and sanitation. Children and women are most vulnerable, with an increased risk of suffering from malnutrition and water-borne diseases.
Ceci est un résumé des déclarations du porte-parole du HCR Babar Baloch – à qui toute citation peut être attribuée – lors de la conférence de presse du 16 mars 2018 au Palais des Nations à Genève.
Le HCR, l’Agence des Nations Unies pour les réfugiés, travaille avec des organisations partenaires dans l’ouest de l’Ouganda pour venir en aide à un nombre croissant de personnes - pour la plupart des femmes et des enfants – qui ont fui d’effroyables violences interethniques et des abus sexuels en République démocratique du Congo (RDC).
In January, 41,387 eligible refugees and asylum-seekers (19,154 households) received cash assistance in Greece, in 95 locations.
This is a summary of what was said by UNHCR spokesperson Babar Baloch – to whom quoted text may be attributed – at today's press briefing at the Palais des Nations in Geneva.
UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, is working with partner organizations in western Uganda to support a growing number of people, most of them women and children, fleeing horrific inter-ethnic violence and sexual abuse in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC).
During 2017, almost 38,900 refugees were submitted by UNHCR for resettlement1 to 25 countries in Europe,2 36% more than during 2016 and over three times greater than the average rate of 12,400 submissions per year during the last decade.
Between 2007 and 2016, Europe’s proportion of resettlement sub-missions globally has increased from approximately 9% to more than 18%, and in 2017 reached 52%. This is primarily due to a significant decrease globally in new submissions for resettlement, most notably to the United States of America.
