UNHCR, WHO Commend Egypt’s Inclusion of Refugees in “100 Million Seha”
UNHCR and WHO commend Egypt’s extension of the “100 Million Seha” campaign to include refugees and asylum-seekers in Egypt in the new phase. The campaign has started providing free tests and medication to all foreign nationals in Egypt including refugees and asylum-seekers.
UNHCR launched a major campaign to spread awareness about the dangers of crossing the Gulf of Aden and Red Sea from Africa to war-stricken Yemen and highlighting the horrendous conditions and rising risks in Yemen.
More than 117,000 refugees and migrants arrived in Yemen in 2016.
