Sanitation facilities and counseling for thousands in camp near Kousseri
The Adventist Development and Relief Agency (ADRA) is responding to the humanitarian needs of thousands of Chadians who have fled to Kousseri, Cameroon, after rebels laid siege to the Chadian capital N'Djamena earlier this month.
At the request of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), ADRA is providing 100 pit latrines, 25 showers, and four waste disposal pits to serve as many as 8,000 refugees who may move into the newly established Maltam 1 Refugee Camp, 22 miles from the border town of Kousseri.
Violence erupted in Kenya after the reelection of President Mwai Kibaki on December 30, 2007. The disputed election triggered a deadly conflict between Kibaki supporters and those of Raila Odinga.
BY THE NUMBERS
More than 1,000 people killed
Thousands are fleeing their homes in Chad following intense fighting in the capital. Thousands continue to flee their homes in Kenya, where political and tribal lines are being drawn. These homeless children, women, and men turn to ADRA for hope, care, and support. And I turn to you, one of our faithful, compassionate supporters who enables us to be in the midst of the desperate situations unfolding in Africa.
