Jesuit Refugee Service/USA's Channel

A grant from the U.S. State Department's Bureau of Population, Refugees and Migration enabled Jesuit Refugee Service to build a multipurpose facility at Mai Aini refugee camp in northeastern Ethiopia. The camp is home to more than 13,500 refugees from neighboring Eritrea.

Jesuit Refugee Service works to promote the mental and physical well-being of refugees in Mai Aini, and to provide them with a positive use of their time — refugees in camps are generally stuck, with no jobs or other activities to fill their days —through provision of recreation activities (sports, music, theater and dance) and by providing a study space along with library services.
