Rwanda is host to more than 162, 000 refugees. UNHCR together with implementing partners such as ADRA Rwanda, Plan International, American Refugee Committee (ARC), Oxfam and others are supporting refugees to rebuild their lives and giving them hope for a brighter future. Their work impacts the lives of all refugees including children and youth; empowering them to overcome various challenges in their lives and make valuable contributions in the society.
Many refugees arrive in foreign countries with little more than the clothes on their back. As such they require every bit of assistance to enable them to get back on their feet to be able feed and educate their children.
