World Refugee Day 2004: Burkina Faso

World Refugee Day 2004: Burkina Faso

20 June 2004

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.

World Refugee Day was celebrated during the whole week of the 14-20 June in Ouagadougou with a series of conferences on refugees and durable solutions. Several sport activities were organised, gathering the Minister of Foreign Affairs, UNHCR and its partners. The minister reaffirmed his support for UNHCR's work and his commitment to enhance the national protection structures for refugees.
