Rema Burundi

Rema Burundi was formed by Burundians in exile, having fled as refugees to neighbouring countries in East Africa from a terrible ethnic conflict. Initially based in Nairobi, a handful of people with limited resources but unlimited hearts set up an organisation to look after their fellow countrymen and women who were suffering in refugee camps, and help to get them home.

As the numbers in the camps have reduced from over half a million to about thirty five thousand currently, Rema returned to Bujumbura with the main focus now on helping returnees to get integrated back into Burundi life, assist with healthcare issues and have their claims to their historic land addressed fairly.
