Crisis in the Buduburam Refugee Camp
Our leaders in the Buduburam Refugee Camp are calling out for help! The Ghana authorities are planning to demolish their houses! “Where will we go? We will be homeless!”
We have a line up of refugees who are desperately trying to go back to Liberia! They are asking “Where will we go when our houses get demolished?” There are uprisings! People are panicking! The demolition was to start on September 30th but they have extended that to the end of November. Everyone is asking, “Where will they go?” They have no money. Everyone is in confusion!
Provision of Hope will try to help as many as we possibly can. They will go by bus.
I have been to this camp. It is deplorable. No human being should be living in these horrific conditions. This is a disease bed!
Police authorities are blaming this camp for housing criminals. This is one of the main reasons they want to see this camp gone. Liberians say this is not true. Who really knows? It’s time for them all to go back home. Liberia will provide a better place than this camp! We have already helped a number to resettle back home.
We have decided to help those who have relatives back home, to help them when they arrive.
Have a look at this document and video published by cititv newsroom to get a better picture of this camp!
When I see this I am reminded of this verse in Psalms 12:5 MSG
Into the hovels of the poor, Into the dark streets where the homeless groan, God speaks: “I’ve had enough; I’m on my way To heal the ache in the heart of the wretched.”
Please join me in prayer for God to make a way for every family left in this camp.
