DRC / Burundi Refugees / Hasmine comes back to the Luvungi makeshift camp after buying some food for her family. She crossed the border with her brother and four children. When her husband and her oldest son were kidnaped in Burundi, she decided to leave the country.
More than 9000 Burundians refugees have crossed into the DRC over the past few weeks. The new
arrivals are being hosted by local families, but the growing numbers are straining
available support. Work is ongoing to identify a site
where all the refugees can be moved, and from where they can have access to
facilities such as schools, health centers and with proper security. / UNHCR / F.Scoppa / May 2015
