Statement by Filippo Grandi, UN High Commissioner for Refugees
Japan announces a USD 856,136 contribution to support Burundian refugees hosted in Rwanda’s Mahama camp for 2021
This generous contribution from the People of Japan will reinforce UNHCR’s intervention in the areas of health, protection, and voluntary return.
One year on: Nine pledges made by the Government of Rwanda at the Global Refugee Forum on education, livelihoods, protection, energy and environment, and health show progress and promise.
After several months of waiting and uncertainty, the resumption of evacuation flights from Libya to Rwanda is a fantastic message of hope for thousands of asylum seekers.
In 2021, Rwanda’s National Statelessness Taskforce and UNHCR will prioritise the identification of statelessness persons and those with undetermined nationality living in Rwanda.
