Let got start to hear the story!!
My name is Mwajuma Bilombele. I was born in Nyarugusu camp, Tanzania and live their for 12 years then we moved to the US. And this story is a documentary for where I used to live.
Nyarugusu camp is one of the largest and best known for 21st-century camp. It located in western Kigoma, Tanzania.
Nyarugusu camp was created in 1996 by the UNHCR after an estimated 150,000 Congolese refugees from the eastern Sud-Kivu region of the DRC.
At that time of period, many Congolese people were crossing the border into Tanzania escaping the civil war.
Right now, many Congolese people remained in the camp for decades without leaving the camp to work, trade, or go to school.
In 2015 many Burundian refugees arrive in Tanzania to escape riots and civil unrest in Burundi. Amd now Tanzania is one of the world´s most generous refugee-hostiing countries.
