Goz Amer — Female refugees of camp Goz Amer in eastern Chad are complaining about herders intruding their lands and grazing their cows in winter-planted farms, on Friday, 4 January.
They told Radio Dabanga about a partnership between refugees and local residents, agreed with authorities and the UNHCR, in which the Sudanese were given pieces of land to grow their own crops.
One of the refugees said the situation with the herders is causing the women "severe frustration".
Rumman Sagairun Adam, the representative of women refugees at Goz Amer, appealed to the UNHCR, the Chadian government and local authorities to stop herders from invading the farms so that the partnership between residents and refugees could continue.
Adam demanded that the UNCHR puts an end to the suffering of women living in refugee camps in east Chad.
