Cholera vaccination at Nyaragusu refugee camp in Tanzania

Tanzania

We provide assistance to refugees living in overcrowded camps in Tanzania.

Tanzania is hosting approximately 280,000 refugees, mainly from Burundi. Due to ongoing unrest in the neighbouring country, people continue to pour across the border.

This additional pressure on the already full and overstretched camps leaves the humanitarian organisations working there struggling to provide adequate shelter, water and sanitation.

Housing new arrivals in overcrowded and unhygienic communal shelters exacerbated the spread of diseases, particularly malaria, diarrhoea and respiratory tract infections.

To meet the increased demand for care, we provide services across the three camps – Nyarugusu, Nduta and Mtendeli, including restructuring existing facilities in Nyarugusu and Nduta to respond to the huge number of patients suffering from malaria.

We are the main healthcare provider in Nduta camp and the only organisation offering a full range of medical services, including reproductive healthcare, treatment for malnutrition and care for victims of sexual violence.
