The Africa RHP regional chapter
is committed to helping the local church and communities faced with refugee and
internally displaced people groups on major highways, as a result of ongoing
and post conflicts in parts of Africa ( e.g. South Sudan and Abyei region of Sudan, Sahel Region,
Horn Africa faced with all forms of humanitarian crisis).CONTACT THE RHP AFRICA
The Africa regional chapter facilitates
and supports the formation of national and regional teams (i.e. in Eastern and
Horn of Africa, Central, Southern and West Africa sub-regions), to
address issues and challenges affecting refugees and the internally displaced
communities due to the effects of conflicts and other natural and human-made
disasters prone in Africa (and globally).
Recognizing the fact that there are many
causes why thousands of people are desperate and sometimes forced to flee or be
uprooted from their homes, and therefore end up as refugees or internally displaced,
the Africa RHP chapter analyzes and documents the causes of violent conflicts
and effects on fleeing communities, mobilizes and inform partners, explores
strategies, develops programs, collaborates and networks with willing relief
and development partners locally and globally.
Sub-regional teams are there to
assist and empower churches and communities in situations of violence and post-conflict,
and to help affected groups respond effectively to any future or current
