More pictures from Nduta
These are the tents that hold the WFP food supply at Nduta camp. WFP delivers the food to TCRS who stores and distributes the items.

Construction of the new transit center at Nduta camp. They hope to complete this in a few weeks. The buildings will house refugees returning to Burundi the night before their departure. Currently repatriants from Nduta must travel to the Kanembwa (about a 45km trip) transit center before returning. All of their luggage and foodstuffs must be transported as well. Logistically, this system has proven to be time consuming and problematic which is why TCRS is constructing a new facility at Nduta.
