Mattarella visits refugee camp, message for all

Wednesday March 16, 2016

President Sergio Mattarella on Wednesday made the first-ever visit by an Italian head of State to a refugee camp, the Gambella camp on Ethiopia's border with South Sudan.

"Visiting this camp with the children who greeted the motorcade and (others) dancing in this school is a message that strikes you: Ethiopia is in difficulty and yet it does not leave those who seek help without help," he said while visiting a school inside the camp.

Sharing borders with Somalia, South Sudan, Sudan and Eritrea which are grappling with conflicts, Ethiopia has been hosting refugees since the 1990s.
