SJEDI partnered with the LRRRC and donated 10 G3300 Clean Wood Cookstoves to the humanitarian project on the boarder with the Ivory Coast.  See the article, LRRRC & SJEDI.  The project was also profiled in the local paper the Daily Observer by Yurfee Binda Shaikalee.

UNHCR Liberia has had to step up its presence significantly in 2011, in order to provide emergency protection and assistance to more than 180,000 refugees from Côte d’Ivoire who crossed the border to escape renewed conflict in their country. The majority of these new refugees have been granted prima facie status by the Liberian Government, and are hosted in camps and relocation villages along the border. In line with its mandate, UNHCR leads the humanitarian intervention in coordination with the Government, other UN agencies and NGOs. The Office also seeks durable solutions for these refugees and, in this respect, a tripartite agreement was signed in August 2011 with the Governments of Liberia and Côte d’Ivoire on the voluntary repatriation of Ivorian refugees.

UNHCR is also committed to supporting the former Sierra Leonean refugees who chose to remain in Liberia, following the invocation of the cessation clauses with respect to this group. Likewise, the application by mid-2012 of the cessation clauses to Liberian refugees, will require special attention to the needs of those who will return from neighbouring countries, as the lack of livelihood opportunities in their areas of origin could hinder their reintegration.
