In November 2015, LWR shipped quilts and kits to our partner organization in Angola – Hope for Angola (HFA). The shipment reached 26,013 recipients, many of whom are Angolan families currently returning from the neighboring Democratic Republic of Congo, where some lived for decades as refugees. This project aims to facilitate local integration of refugees and asylum seekers and perpetually internally displaced peoples (IDPs) by supplying basic items for hygiene and school materials, while HFA works to meet basic needs (shelter, food and clothing) through the help of other humanitarian organizations and the Angolan government.
