UNHCR praises Tanzania for support to refugees


Dar es salaam, Tanzania | Xinhua | The United Nations refugee agency commended Tanzania for its unwavering support in hosting refugees, a statement has said.

The statement released on Friday by the Ministry of Finance and Planning said the praise was given by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) Country Representative for Tanzania, Mahoua Parums, when she held talks with the Minister of Finance and Planning, Mwigulu Nchemba, in Dar es Salaam.
