Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 29, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 19. Tttt KTHtKIDGl HBULB S7 Refugee' Problem Growing Br KEXNTTH I. WHITING JOHANNESBURG, South Af rica (AP) A restless tide hapless humanity ebbe flows across Atrfci. Some walk alone, others in columns ot black carrying thei meagre possessions and nourished children. More than refugees uprooted from dozen countries. Some observ ers think the figure is much higher. Like so many other problem in Africa, the flow of refugees has no immediate solution. I fact, say the experts, the num ber is more likely to increase than diminish. The United Nations high com mission for refugees tends some of the homeless, which last count totalled Ttis figure does not include thousands displaced inside their own countries by terrorism or civil war. Nor does it cover the millions who still lead nomadic lives or hundreds of thousands of "voluntary" economic gees who must leave. impover- ished homelands to find work elsewhere. MANY WALKED HOME Also outside the latest official bead count are tens of thou- sands of aliens kicked out of Ghana in recent weeks. As many as of Ghana's foreigners could be af- fected. They include Africans from Nigeria, Togo, Niger, Upper Volia and Dahomey. Many lived and worked in Ghana for decades. More than Nigerians trekked tome, many of them sick, penniless and demoralized. Many walked all the way. truckers and operators of creaky "mammy wagons" in- avisei fares as much as WO per cent when the exodus began to haul deportees from Ghana across Togo and Dahomey to Nigeria. One truck overturned in Dahomey, tilling 21 and in- juring 60. Many found they bad DO pa- pers re-enter their own coun- try. Hjbes were common, but 'often produced no results. .Uganda is one of the lew countries where the refugee sit- uation 'has improved slightly. Resettled on fertile many no longer need help. They ara harvesting good crops, sending their children to school and pay- ing taxes. I NOW PLANTING CROPS A three-phase UN plan to as- sist the" homeless has shown signs of success. The.first step is emergency settlement on the land. Food, clothing, shelter, seeds and sim- ple agricultural toois are prov- ided for those who will be fully integrated in the adopted land. Money for this usually corces from the Red Cross and other international organizations, since the country can't spare much cash for non-citizens. Su- danese refugees in Uganda, An- golans in Zambia and Mozambi- quans in Tanzania now are in this stage. The second phase includes the building of modest roads, bridges, water supplies and a few permanent buildings. Refu- gees DOW are planting their first crops. Uganda, Zambia and the Central African Republic nave such settlements. In the third phase, refugees attain the same economic stand- ards as the original local popu- lation. Burundi reached this last year when the resettlement program for Rwaodans was expanded into a rural redevelopment pro- ject for everyone in the Mosso- Cankuso area. m SIMPSONS-SEARS summer APRIL 29, 30, MAY 1st PHONE 328-7716 First Woman County Court Judge Dead PORT COLBORNE, Onl.
