Eritrean refugees have received essential humanitarian aid, in Islamic Relief Yemen’s latest project.
In total, 216 people – including women and children – benefitted from protection assistance such as mattresses, as well as blankets and a food parcel. The package was distributed earlier this month (July) and included flour, rice, milk, sugar, milk and dates.
Islamic Relief is helping refugees – who have been living in limbo in a camp – to integrate into life in Tunisia.
The refugees, who fled conflict which began in Libya two years ago, cannot return to the country or to their countries of origin.
Islamic Relief, with agreement from UNHCR, has been managing activity in Shousha camp since March 2011 and will wind down the camp late this year. Since January, we have been delivering services to 384 people not prioritised by the UNHCR for resettlement – who include Somalians, Eritrean, and Darfurians.
Seasonal rains in Kenya should have brought relief to its drought-stricken regions. Instead the heavy rainfall has caused flash floods in many places.
