Africa's 'least funded' refugee crisis

Model and photographer, Helena Christensen, has called for urgent funding and global attention for Burundian refugees living in Rwanda following a trip to the Mahama refugee camp with the UNHCR.

Efforts to support Burundi's refugees are currently only 28% funded.

Catherine Wiesner is the UNHCR Regional Refugee Coordinator for the Burundi refugee situation.
