Intentions surveys at transit centres
UNHCR and partners continued with the intention surveys in Hamdayet and Village 8 to assess whether refugees plan to relocate to the designated locations further inland, to gather data on persons with specific needs (PSNs), and to identify existing family ties with refugees already residing in the camps. So far, 126 individuals (105 households) and 393 individuals (211 households) have been surveyed in Hamdayet and Village 8 respectively.
