Govt committed to improve refugees’ welfare

As Malawi joins the rest of the world in commemorating World Refugee Day, with a special event at Dzaleka Refugee Camp in Dowa, Principal Secretary in the Ministry of Homeland and Security, Erica Maganga, says government is doing everything possible to improve the welfare of the refugees.

She says government is aware of the health and economic hazards that the congestion at the Dzaleka Refugee Camp poses hence partnerships have been made to improve access to water and sanitation, security and expedite relocation of the camp to a more spacious site that has over 445 hectares of land in Chitipa.

Though the World Refugee Day is globally recognized on June 20, the celebration in Malawi is taking place today after the 21 days of national mourning that had been declared by the State President.

This year’s theme, “Solidarity in Action: Building Solutions Together with Refugees,” has been highlighted through various activities including traditional and school performances, speeches and exhibitions showcasing agriculture, business, and technology.
