Tanzania Humanitarian Emergency

The daily flow of refugees from both Burundi and DRC places a constant strain on already overstretched resources. All three refugee camps are beyond their intended capacity and the delays in finding a suitable fourth camp site is leading to overcrowding and stretching of resources, particularly for water and space for temporary schools. The decision to place all new refugee arrivals in Nduta camp means the camp is being rapidly expanded, including into areas where topography and geology is not ideal for digging of latrines and drainage.
