REFUGEE CAMPS

Many Sudanese people enter refugee camps immmediately after they flee Sudan. These camps are usually run by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees in conjunction with other non-governmental organisations. They aim to provide a safe stopping place for people who have fled Sudan for fear of persecution. Sudanese people can live in these camps for many years before they are offered a visa to enter another country.
The sites and articles below offer some insight into the experiences that Sudanese refugees have in these camps.
