Minawao camp for Nigerian refugees, May 2019Add to Cart Add to Lightbox Download
30 May 2019, Mokolo, Cameroon: Women oversee the metal containers in which biomass is burnt, in preparation to become charcoal. At the Minawao camp for Nigerian refugees, degradable and non-degradable waste are separated, so that biomass can be burnt in metal containers, processed and finally transformed into charcoal briquettes as a source of recycled energy to be used as firewood for cooking. With the support of an environment monitor from the Lutheran World Federation World Service programme, the full process from waste to charcoal is managed and run by the refugees themselves. The Minawao camp for Nigerian refugees, located in the Far North region of Cameroon, hosts some 58,000 refugees from North East Nigeria. The refugees are supported by the Lutheran World Federation, together with a range of partners.
