work permits for 30,000 refugees in east Sudan News Stories, 2 October 2013 © UNHCR/A.Awad A group of refugees in eastern Sudan. Under the new agreement, many will be able to work and become more self-sufficient. KASSALA, Sudan, October 2 (UNHCR) – Nearly 30,000 work permits will be granted to refugees in Sudan's Kassala state under an agreement with the UN refugee agency to improve the livelihoods of refugees and reduce their dependence on external assistance. The agreement between UNHCR and Sudan's Commission for Refugees (COR), Kassala State, and Kassala Ministry of Finance – last week after negotiations that began in late 2011 – is an unprecedented step for refugees in Sudan. Work permits are essential for refugees to legally work and have the same employee rights as Sudanese citizens. "The government of Sudan's endorsement of this agreement represents a huge milestone in the refugees' progress towards self-reliance and reducing dependency on external humanitarian aid," said Mohamed Qassim, head of UNHCR Sub-Office Kassala. "To this end, the agreement is of the upmost importance to accessing meaningful livelihood opportunities for the refugees in this region."
