In Agadez High Commissioner Grandi appeals for international community to support Niger.

By Don Murray

AGADEZ, Niger - Their lives have been reduced to waiting in the heat. Many must sleep on the ground. But at least now they are safe.

They are refugees, asylum seekers and persons of concern for UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency. They wait now here, in Agadez, Niger. Most are Sudanese, and many have appalling stories to tell.

En 2017, la mission de l’OIM Niger a recueilli les témoignages de près de 9 100 migrants assistés dans quatre localités au Niger (Agadez, Arlit, Dirkou et Niamey), ainsi qu’à Diffa et Zinder. Ces migrants ont souvent échoué dans leur parcours migratoire, ont vécu des situations difficiles, et n’ont souvent plus les moyens financiers pour rentrer chez eux. La majorité des migrants arrivant dans les centres de transit de l’OIM Niger ont séjourné en Algérie, en Libye, ou dans d’autres pays voisins du Niger.
