John Kayihula, Congolese refugee in Rwanda: I focus on sport so as to forget my life
9 July 2014 (IRIN ), Few of the 14,700 Congolese refugees in Rwanda’s Gihembe camp envisage returning home any time soon.

30 June 2014 (IRIN ), When a team from Oxford University's Humanitarian Innovation Project set out to explore what work refugees and asylum seekers in Uganda had managed to find, they were struck by the breadth and scale of businesses they were engaged in - from being café owners to vegetable sellers, to farmers growing maize on a commercial scale, millers, restaurateurs, transporters and traders in fabrics and jewellery.
