  1. Hi,
    I am worried about this sorts of violence inside the refugee camps. The security is still becoming a problem for refugees inside the camps.In particular, the inocent refugees residing in the huts are facing difficulty to cope up with the vulnerable life in the refugee slum. Everybody including the supporting agencies, camp committees and social organizations should gear up the process for maintaining secure life in the refugee camp. Let there be peace in the camp.
    Thanks
