Get behind the Refugee Reintegration Programme by Sarah Binos

18 July 2008

"When an alien lives with you in your land, do not mistreat him. The alien living with you must be treated as one of your native-born. Love him as yourself, for you were aliens in Egypt. I am the Lord your God." Leviticus 19:33-34

Get behind the Refugee Reintegration Programme


Leviticus 19:33 - 34
When an alien lives with you in your land, do not mistreat him. The alien living with you must be treated as one of your native-born. Love him as yourself, for you were aliens in Egypt. I am the LORD your God.


Snapshot of the issue:


During the recent xenophobic attacks on foreigners in our country, approximately 20 000 people in and around Cape Town alone were left displaced and destitute. Although some have returned to their homelands or sought refuge in neighbouring countries, the majority have gone back to the places they fled. However, for lack of an alternative, a number of people remain in safety sites which the provincial government plans to close. In response, CGC has devised a Refugee Integration Plan whereby we have committed to helping refugees in Chrysalis Camp in Tokai, get back on their feet.
