Foreign Envoys Visit Ivorian Refugee Camp

By John Bropleh, Maryland County Correspondent

MONROVIA Feb 3(LINA) – About a dozen Ambassadors accredited to Liberia have paid a one-day visit to the Little Webbo Refugee Camp in Harper District, Maryland County.

Little Webbo Refugee camp was established by the UNHCR several years ago at the beginning of the Ivorian Civil conflict.

The diplomats’ visit last Friday was at the invitation of the UNCHR, to assess the plight of Ivorian Refugees and see how best their respective countries could help the UN agency to continuously provide assistance to the refugees.

The visit was also intended for their countries to become actively involved in the activities of the UNHCR, which is currently experiencing donor fatigue because of the ongoing crisis in Syria, Central African Republic and Southern Sudan, an official of the UN agency said.

Meanwhile, during the visit of the diplomats, Ivorian Ambassador to Liberia lauded the Liberian Government for the level of care and protection it continues to accord Ivorian refugees.

He noted that the meeting between President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf and Ivorian leader Alassane Quattara last year gives a clear signal of African brotherhood which, he observed, has brought the two countries and peoples closer.

The visiting diplomats included the American, Swedish, German, Ivorian, Brazilian, Ghanaian, Guinean, Nigerian and the UN Special Representative of the Secretary General to Liberia, among others.
