Voluntary Repatriation of Ivorian Refugees
■ In September 2017, 48 Ivorian refugees have returned from Togo, Ghana and Gambia in dignity and safety with support from UNHCR and its partners.
■ The cities of Guiglo, Tabou and Toulepleu are currently facing heavy rains, which has led to the degradation of roads and the flooding of Guiglo’s Prefecture and General Hospital in the West. Due to the weather conditions, UNHCR’s repatriation and reintegration activities have been slowed down throughout the month of September.
■ The ferry used by repatriation convoys from Liberia in the South-West of the country is currently undergoing maintenance, which has resulted in the temporary suspension of repatriations. The effective resumption of the activities of the ferry for repatriation activities is scheduled for October 2017.
