UNHCR Sahel Crisis Response External Operational Update 16-31 May 2020

Document Type:
Document Language: English
On 30 May 2020, a coordinated attack on the Intikane refugee camp in the Tahoua region of Niger killed three refugee leaders, caused severe damages and forced thousands of persons to flee. Despite movement restrictions and border closures imposed by Sahel countries to limit the spread of COVID-19, ongoing violence and the dire humanitarian situation continue to force people to flee. In this challenging context, UNHCR is stepping up its response in the Sahel, putting emphasis on providing shelter, education and programmes to prevent and address sexual and gender-based violence.
