World Refugee Day 2002: Rwanda

World Refugee Day 2002: Rwanda

20 June 2002

UNHCR staff register refugees at the Douma registration center on the outskirts of Damascus. Registering with UNHCR ensures that the most vulnerable refugees receive aid.

The main celebration took place in the Congolese refugee camp in Byumba Prefecture in the presence of ambassadors, NGO and UN agency representatives. The programme included sports competitions, sketches, dances, and poems.
