Handover Ceremony of five staff houses and one police station in Meheba Resettlement Scheme in collaboration with UNDP
On 23rd March, Mr. OMINATO Satoshi, Deputy Chief of Mission, attended the handover ceremony for five staff houses and one police post at Meheba Resettlement Scheme, which were constructed by UNDP through financial support by the Japanese Government and UNTFHS (United Nations Trust Fund for Human Security). The ceremony was graced by the presence of Retd. Col. Grandson Katambi, Permanent Secretary of North-Western Province, and attended by Mr. Roland Seri, Deputy Resident Representative of UNDP, Ms. Brenda Sankisa, Kalumbila District Commissioner and Mr. Paul Chisanga, North-Western Province Principal Land Resettlement Officer.
The staff houses are expected to play a principle role in providing former refugees and Zambian people in the resettlement scheme with improved social services such as health and education and enhancing staff engagement, which will further facilitate the community activities. The police station will serve the public safety and enhance the quality of life in the community.
We hope these facilities are effectively used to improve the access to basic needs in the resettlement scheme. Japan will continue to support the Zambian Government in its effort to accepting refugees and integrating former refugees.
