Tens of thousands of Burundian Christian women and children have fled political violence in their homeland since April to seek refuge in neighbouring Tanzania. The camp facilities are overflowing and there are severe shortages of food and shelter. At the time of writing 55,000 were sleeping in the open air. There is normally a rainy season in November-December, which will make life even worse for those who have no shelter. Tanzanian churches were striving to bring aid to the refugees, but are very poor themselves and had little to share with others. Funds from Barnabas are enabling the churches to do more. Ask Jehovah Jireh (the Lord will provide) to meet the needs of the refugees, who are arriving at the rate of 2,500 a day.
