Press Statement: Urgent Appeals in Light of Refugee Return Concerns

Following the relocation of refugees to Dzaleka, many of them are struggling to fend for themselves and their families as they rely on $5 (about K10 500) monthly food allowance from the World Food Programme (WFP). It is not surprising therefore, that some of them have started returning to the communities in both rural and urban areas to earn a living. As a result, the Lilongwe District Council issued a statement on 18 January, urging all refugees who are back in the communities, to return to Dzaleka. Inua Advocacy reiterates its concerns over the encampment policy without a sustainability plan. Read the full statement here.
