UNHCR and Better Shelter

Better Shelter and  UNHCR Mozambique implemented 48 units in Maratane refugee settlement in Nampula, in the north. The shelters currently serve 3 different purposes:

  • to care for victims of sexual and gender-based violence
  • to serve as family shelters in transit shelters
  • to serve as a Community Center

20 refugees from DRC, Burundi and Rwanda participated in the training session held by Better Shelter and UNHCR.

According to UNHCR, 78% of the refugees hosted in Mozambique are from DRC, most of them have fled from  the Eastern region of the country which is suffering from a recent surge in violence against civilians. So far, the conflicts in the Great Lake area, as well as the deteriorating humanitarian situation,  have displaced over 7.5 million people.
