* Burundians expelled from Tanzania seek refuge and help in transit camps

Chantal Nizigiyimana came back to Burundi a few months ago. She grew up in Tanzania after ethnic conflict in 1993 forced her mother to take her children and flee across the border.

Chantal was forced to leave Tanzania after the authorities there decided all Burundians had to go home. Luckily for her, a friend of her mother’s offered her a small one-room house and the chance to cultivate some land.

SOUNDBITE CHANTAL NIZIGIYIMANA: “I have been given a chance to start a new life. At the moment I am cultivating crops for other people but I am looking forward to buying my own land soon so I can grow my own crops.”

Chantal passed through this transit camp at Kinazi after border police sent her there, when they saw she had no papers.

Kinazi is a protected site for expelled Burundians. It is run by a government resettlement agency called PARESI with the support of UNICEF, the World Food Programme, the Red Cross, and the International Rescue Committee.

While PARESI helps to trace people’s former communities and recover land rights, the expelled persons are given clothes, food, water, shelter and separate accommodation and sanitation facilities for men and women. A health clinic is also on site for those who need it.

SOUNDBITE ETIENNE NIYONGERE: “Some of those who arrive here have been threatened by the Tanzanian authorities, some have been tortured, others had to leave their children behind. Their husbands have stayed there and they come here all alone and ask for help.”

The most difficult cases to attend to are those called “without reference”. This means they have been unable to trace their community of origin, have no family left, or they left Burundi so long ago that their land has been sold to someone else.

This group, mostly young women and children, will stay in the camp until a home can be found for them.

For those who can return home, WFP provides them with enough food for three months, while UNICEF supplies clothes, soap, a mosquito net, a kitchen set and water carriers.

In order to ensure their resettlement and re-integration is successful, UNICEF’s government partner PARESI, keeps track of all the expelled Burundians.

The chance to start a new life back in their own country is just beginning.
