New clinics open for Burundian refugees in Rwanda

Rwanda Thursday inaugurated two new clinics for Burundian refugees at Mahama Refugee Camp, where it is expected to serve over 50,000 refugees.

The facilities were inaugurated by Rwanda’s Minister of Disaster Management and Refugees Seraphine Mukantabana and UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) representative Saber Azam.

As the camp is split into two administrative units, UNHCR with its partners constructed the two health centers serving Mahama I and Mahama II.

Azam said he was proud that the health response in Mahama was well coordinated, of good quality and respecting key humanitarian standards.

Mahama Camp was opened in April 2015 and rapidly became the largest of Rwanda’s six refugee camps within a few months.
