The United Nation Migration Agency, International Organization for Migration (IOM) said a total of 103 Malawians are now back home from South Africa through the Assisted Voluntary Return and Sustainable Community-Based Reintegration project.

According to IOM Project officer in Malawi, Nana Ama Oppon, the project that was launched in June and in pilot phase, aims at helping stranded migrants living in South Africa to go back home.

Oppon told journalists in Malawi’s lakeshore district, Mangochi, on Wednesday that the project has received a lot of attention as many people want to be assisted to go back to their homeland from the rainbow country.

She added that out of the 103 returnees, 20 have had reintegration assistance while others are still going through some orientation to prepare them for a new life back home. Enditem
