Over 23,000 Bhutanese Refugees Relocated.

The total number of Bhutanese refugees resettled in the third countries has crossed 23.000, according to the UNHCR. Of the total of 107,O17(2007) refugees living in the seven UNHCR administered camps in eastern Nepal, 23,214 have now left for third countries to begin entirely new lives.

Among the seven core group nations resettling the Bhutanese refugees under one of the UNHCR’s largest refugee resettlement programs, the United States has welcome the highest number, with 20,327 resettled there till date. In the same way,Australia has received 959 refugees from Bhutan putting Canada in the third rank resettling 892 Bhutanese in its land. Norway has resettled 310, Denmark, 305 and NewZealand, 299. A small number of the Bhutanese(122) have also reached Netherlands choosing this Northwestern European nation their home.

As an alternative to this tediously drawn-out Bhutanese refugee crisis, UNHCR, with the strong support from the Nepal Government, International Organization for Migration(IOM), resettlement nations and other humanitarian organizations, began the relocation of these refugees in Nov. 2007 solely on humanitarian ground.

The program turned to be controversial and created misunderstanding among the refugees in the beginning and many people didn’t wish to opt it, but now, having seen no other ways to repatriate, around 90% of them have expressed their interest in resettlement.
