On 25 April, the President of Burundi announced that he would run for a third term in scheduled elections. This contravened the constitution and triggered widespread protest which has since escalated.. As a result, there is now a refugee crisis in Tanzania. Since the unrest began, 76,500 Burundi refugees having arrived in Tanzania (as of 19 May 2015) and cases of cholera have now also been confirmed in the refugee population. These people are highly vulnerable with currently no access to shelter, clean water or health services.
The main destination for incoming refugees is Nyarugusu Refugee Camp. As such, we need this area mapped so that assistance can be provided to arrivals in the most efficient and effective way.

- #MissingMaps Nyarugusu Refugee Camp #Tanzania #hotosm-project-1068 When saving your work, please leave the default comment but add what you actually mapped, for example "added buildings and a residential road".
Please click on a task / square to start mapping. Priority is the centre of the task as the buildings are much denser there. Feel free to split the squares!
Simply digitise the outline of the building and make sure you either SQUARE (iD editor shortcut key = 'S') the corners of square/rectangular buildings OR ROUND OFF/CIRCLE (iD editor shortcut key = 'O') any circular buildings.
Then tag as building=yes or building=building.
Once you've completed a task, please mark your task as done and select a new task.
There has also been some basic mapping of the refugee camp prior to this task creation, with key administrative buildings such as verification centres already marked. For this reason, do not edit or change any existing tags.
