Buduburam was established in 1990 to accommodate the influx of Liberian refugees who fled to Ghana when Charles Taylor came to power. Initially, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) provided the settlement’s residents with individual aid and relief to the poor Refugees.
In 1997, however, Liberia held elections that the UN Judged to be fair enough to allow for safe repatriation conditions. As a result, the UNHCR discontinued refugee assistance to Liberians in Ghana, and the settlement lost must of this funding. During this time, an estimated 3,000 refugees returned to Liberia. Most of them chose to remain in Ghana, however, and the Buduburam settlement served as the center of their community.
Soon after the 1997 elections, the political situation in Liberia worsened, and fresh arrivals of Liberian refugees to Ghana led the UNHCR to return to Buduburam. Although the UNHCR limits its provisional aid, efforts in the settlement to unaccompanied minors, wounded and the elderly, and the disabled, the organization does sponsor infrastructure work within the community, funding projects such as construction and education.
The Camp now hosts to over 42,000 refugees, most of whom are Liberian, Somalis, Sudanese and others. The settlement still receives new refugees on a regular basis.
In February 2011, the Deputy Minister of Information in Ghana indicated that Buduburam is no longer needed and that the inhabitants should consider returning to Liberia or settling elsewhere in Ghana yet that statement did not deter or close the Refugees from commuting the bad environment and poor condition but continue to live for good.
In 1997 Liberia held elections that the UN judged to be fair enough to allow for safe repatriation conditions for Liberia Refugees living in Ghana due to genocide in Liberia. As a result, the UNHCR discontinued refugee assistance to Liberians in Ghana, and the settlement lost most of its funding.
