LIBERIA-COTE D'IVOIRE: Refugees look for long-term solutions

Date Published: 
08/04/2011
Summary: 

While some facilities in the village, like latrines, and the local school are stretched - the school now runs two daily sessions, one for Liberians, one for Ivoirians - some local villagers say life has improved since the refugees arrived. Food aid is being delivered to refugee and host families by the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR) and the World Food Programme; free health services at the local clinic - provided by NGO Merlin - have been stepped up; and a play area for children has been set up by the UN Children�s Fund (UNICEF) and Save the Children.
