IEDA Relief Helps Refugees Determine When to Return

Burkina Faso UNHCR Awareness Talks


During the week of the 26th of January 2015, representatives of the UNHCR, IEDA Relief, and the CONAREF visited the refugee camps of Dori and Djibo, as well as the area outside of the camps of Gorom-Gorom to discuss the tripartite agreement with the refugee camp inhabitants. The tripartite agreement was signed between the Government of Mali, the Government of Burkina Faso, and the UNHCR for the voluntary return of the refugees. The reason for the awareness discussions was to clarify that the agreement’s purpose was to facilitate the return of refugees in these camps to Mali, and not to force the refugees to leave as was believed by some.
