Fadela Novak-Irons - Refugees in the Warm Heart of Africa

From Sunday Morning, 7:47 am on 17 July 2016

New Zealander Fadela Novak-Irons is just completing a three-month emergency assignment as Senior Emergency Coordinator for UNHCR in Malawi, to help coordinate the refugee response following an influx of Mozambican refugees into the country that calls itself "The Warm Heart of Africa". She says refugees have indeed been welcomed into Malawi, and she's been working in a camp designed more like a settlement with family gardens and cultivation land and which has an approach of peaceful co-existence among refugee communities.
