Plus de 55 000 réfugiés burundais vivent aujourd'hui dans le camp de Mahama. Situé dans la province orientale du Rwanda, ce camp accueille des personnes ayant fui l'agitation politique que connaît le Burundi depuis avril 2015.
Dans le cadre du programme du CICR visant à permettre le rétablissement des liens familiaux dans la région des Grands Lacs, la délégation de Kigali a distribué des cartes SIM aux réfugiés burundais accueillis dans le camp de Mahama.

Burundi has been in turmoil since June 2015, when the incumbent president was re-elected for a controversial third term. Hundreds of people were killed in the unrest and violence that followed, and hundreds of thousands have fled the country for safety. Rwanda is among the neighbouring nations offering sanctuary to Burundian refugees. Alan Whelan reports from the Trócaire-supported Mahama refugee camp in eastern Rwanda.
More than 55,000 Burundian refugees call Mahama camp home. The main camp located in the eastern province of Rwanda accommodates people who fled the political unrest in Burundi, which began in April 2015.
As part of the ICRC's Restoring Family Links programme in the Great Lakes region, the Kigali Delegation distributed SIM cards to Burundian refugees in the Mahama camp. The idea is to make it easier for the people to directly reconnect with their families.
