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.
