48.000 refugees from Leitchore and Nip Nip camps were relocated to Jewi camp mid May 2015. The refugees were affected by a flood that occurred last year.
It is only two months since the refugees were relocated to Jewi, but inside Jewi refugee camp it looks like the refugees have been there far longer. Children have made friends, businesses have been established, food has been distributed and neighbours are interacting. However, there are still a lot of facilities that need to be put in place in order to assist the relocated refugees.
