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.
