Tanzania has been surrounded by conflict and has hosted refugees from Burundi, Rwanda and Democratic Republic of Congo.
The IRC has helped support the refugees with emergency aid as they wait in temporary camps.
The IRC identifies vulnerable children and makes sure they have access to health care.
The IRC prevents sexual violence, raising awareness about survivors and responding to the their needs.
The IRC distributes food, soap, blankets and other necessities.
We help refugees return home or complete the naturalisation process to remain in Tanzania.
Welcoming these displaced people has strained Tanzania’s already limited resources and the International Rescue Committee has helped support the refugees with emergency aid and ongoing services as they wait in temporary camps to return home or resettle. Beyond the camps the IRC has expanded its support to local communities as well.
