UNHCR urges all parties for smooth delivery of humanitarian assistance to refugees
PDF File Size: 35 KB | Download   
The UN refugee agency urges the understanding of the local residents around the Goldhap refugee camp in eastern Nepal to allow the smooth delivery of humanitarian assistance to the refugees. It is learnt that they have organized a road blockade since 14 August 2006 with the aim of pressuring UNHCR to undertake development work in the areas surrounding the refugee camp, which unfortunately goes beyond the mandate and funding possibilities of the UN refugee agency. Expressing his concern, UNHCR’s Representative in Nepal, Abraham Abraham said, “This is unfortunate and disappointing. This has seriously affected the delivery of humanitarian assistance and risks the eroding of international protection to the refugees.” The UN World Food Programme and the NGO partners are also seriously affected by this blockade.
“As a result of the blockade, trucks carrying cooking fuel as well as undertaking emergency medical transport have been blocked from reaching the Goldhap camp at an extreme cost of deprivation of refugee livelihood,” added Abraham. Abraham said, “This disruption has added to an already suffering population that is yearning to somehow find permanent solutions to their plight and needs all the help they can get.”
