The United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) reports that the second largest refugees in the world are in Sub-Saharan Africa with almost 6.6 million displaced people. Displaced, simply put are emigrants, evacuees and deportees from other countries. This body is responsible for the protection and promotion of human rights around the world. They are also the UN agency for refugees.
With all numerical statistics on the UNHRC, their survey shows that across the world, at least one person is forcibly displaced every two seconds as a result of conflicts or persecution. Also, the Sub-Saharan hosts 26 percent to the refugees in the world. This would amount to a total of 24.5 million refugees across the globe of which half of them are under 18. This is not a stable figure as it has recently been rising because of the ongoing crisis in Central African Republic, South Sudan, Somalia, the Democratic Republic of Congo and Burundi. Backed up by UNECA, all statistics provided has been proven accurate.
African leaders are meeting in the Ethiopian capital, Addis Ababa, to look for lasting solutions to this menace. Displaced people appearing at random countries on the surface of the earth at every blink of an eye could be a terror to the citizens. These African leaders are attending an African Union Summit which this year focuses on refugees, returnees and internally displaced persons.
Not surprisingly, 85 percent of the world’s displaced persons are from developing countries consisting of individuals residing in South Sudan, Somalia, Sudan, DR Congo, Central African Republic, Uganda, Kenya and Ethiopia in unbelievably large numbers. Hopefully, the resolutions from the pending summit would birth a revolution for these displaced people because with each passing second, another being joins the lot. This, therefore, increases the mortality rate of living beings geometrically as before long, fight for the basic necessities of life would ensue among them.
