Hi Ambi,
The host community does not comprehend that; Refugee youth are simply youth trying to get through life despite of being away from their home countries.
The poverty in the urban slums is for all the residents, both local and refugees are living in poverty but the local youth feel like the refugees are a threat, coming to take the little resources they have so Instead of uniting for increase, they contend.
Looking at limited water supply;
There is competition for water in the slums and the refugees are affected greatly.
When it comes to pricing the available water, the prices for refugees are doubled yet they are also merely trying to get water for their basic needs with the little money they have.
