STORYLINE:

Congolese refugees and their hosts in Zambia’s Mantapala settlement are sharing services as part of a new inclusive approach in the country. The new school and clinic in the settlement, which is supported by UNHCR and various partners are open to everyone.

Built around existing farmland Zambia’s Mantapala settlement is home to both Congolese refugees and locals. It was designed to encourage inclusion and foster good relations between locals and refugees as part of the wider response to refugee movements known as the Comprehensive Refugee Response Framework, or CRRF.

Last year, the Zambian government passed legislation that ensured both refugees and host communities would benefit from services in settlements like Mantapala, but more funding support is needed to make that happen.

This baby is just 20 minutes old. Her mother is a refugee from DR Congo.

SOUNDBITE (English) Patricia Sampule, Nurse:
“I’ve just delivered the baby girl, from her mother Beatrice, which was 3.4KG. The baby is fine, the mother is also fine, and everything is OK.”

They live in Mantapala settlement, home to 13,000 refugees and 5,000 Zambians There are now new services here. Like this health clinic which is open to everyone

SOUNDBITE (English) Patricia Sampule, Nurse:
“For family planning they come. For under five clinics, they come. So at least we are saving lives because of this institution.”

SOUNDBITE (Bemba) Future Mwamba, Zambian Resident:
“I’m happy and feel lucky there is now a clinic nearby. If I don’t feel well I can just come here and get help.”

When Beatrice’s baby is old enough she can go to the new school that’s under construction, where Congolese and Zambian students study side by side.

SOUNDBITE (Bemba) Whiteson Mwila, Zambia Student:
“We all get on really well together. I have lots of Congolese friends, they are really friendly, and there is no conflict between us.”

The school, though, still needs more teachers. This settlement is proof refugees and their hosts
can benefit from living and working together.

SOUNDBITE (Bemba) Augustine Ilunga Kabange, Congolese Refugee:
“If we work together with them, the Zambians won’t feel annoyed, and they won’t think that we have come to take over their land. If we all work together they will also benefit. They will earn money they can use in their homes.”

Both the clinic and school will be run by the Zambian government.

SOUNDBITE (English) Abdon Mawere, Zambian Commissioner for Refugees:
“It is important that refugee programs also benefit the host community. So, you will see from the approach in Mantapala that all the services that we have set up, we have set them up in the communities where the refugees have come to settle.”

The future looks bright for Beatrice’s baby, and for her Zambian friends.
