BARCELONA president Joan Laporta will next week visit refugee camps in Rwanda which the club’s foundation and the UN have been financing for the past two years.

According to the club website, Laporta will visit camps at Gihembe, Kiziba and Nyabiheke, which are home to a combined population of over 35,000 people.

Barcelona said their charitable foundation had constructed sports facilities and care centres and helped train teachers at the camps.

The camps were set up to cater for survivors of the 1994 genocide against the Tutsis. The visits will be carried out on Wednesday and Thursday.
