Representatives of Canadian immigration agencies visit camps


Mar 09: Two Canadians traveled extensively in Beldangi camp on Tuesday to access the latest situation in the camps at the wake of resettlement process.

Margaret Styczynska, manager for resettlement and integration services of the Calgary Catholic Immigration Society and Bozana Sljuka, manager for settlement programs of the Lethbridge Family Service met with the exiled Bhutanese today and talked in person to know their grievances.

They assured the exiled Bhutanese willing to resettle in Canada that coping with language is not so difficult but needs more attention and enthusiasm.

According to Govinda Koirala, they visited the language classes being run for the  elderly people, children program offices and health posts.

The duo also reached out to special security huts in Beldangi I camp and consoled those living there not to fear the threats given to them.
