In April 2015, pre-election violence in Burundi resulted in more than 96,000 people fleeing to neighbouring countries, with the majority finding refuge in Tanzania. By the end of May, 15,000 refugees found their way to Tanzania's Nyarugusu refugee camp, and 30,000 were reported at the border post in Kagunga, just two kilometres inside Tanzania's borders. The situation in Tanzania is dire and existing infrastructures are unable to accommodate refugees' needs.
This project seeks to ensure that the survival and basic health care needs of Burundian refugees are met through the provision of health and sanitation services to 90,000 refugees in camps and reception centres, and the distribution of relief supplies to 6,000 households.
