A cholera outbreak at a refugee camp sheltering thousands of Burundian refugees in northwest Tanzania has killed at least 33 people (Tanzanian regional health official said on Wednesday). Another 77 Burundians in Nyarugusu - in the western province of Kigoma - are being treated for severe watery diarrhea. Some 300 people are being treated for watery diarrhea at Kagunga near the Tanzanian border and at the Stadium in Kigoma. There are fears that the outbreak, may take more time to contain.


The funds donates go to the provision of safe and clean water to help reduce the risk of transmission of cholera and contain the outbreak of the disease in the refugee camp.

Long-Term Impact
