Chadian migrants from Libya are helped to resettle

Distribution of non food items to the arriving migrants

Thousands of Chadian migrants who worked in Libya for many years lost their livelihoods when they were forced to return home as the country went through political turmoil.

Now, thanks to a donation of $2.9 million by the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation, the International Organization for Migration (IOM) is helping the Chadians resettle in their country.

On Monday, IOM and the Swiss agency signed a two-year community stabilization project to support the livelihoods of the Chadian migrants and the local community in which they have settled.

To find out more about this, UN Radio's Derrick Mbatha spoke on the line to Geneva with IOM spokesperson, Jumbe Omari Jumbe.
