31 persons from Somalia, Eritrea and Sudan including a family of three and 28 single adult men left on Wednesday to start a new life in the United States, under the US Refugee Resettlement Program (USRRP).  On arrival, they will be assisted by NGOs in the U.S.A. to proceed to their final destinations in various states.

This latest departure brings the total of beneficiaries of international protection who were resettled to the United States from Malta since 2007 to 958 migrants. Since the start of the USRRP in 2008, the number of beneficiaries of protection resettled to the United States amounts to 930.

To date, 147 migrants have been resettled from Malta to the United States of America during 2012. Such resettlements to the United States will continue in the coming weeks.

In all 1,592 refugees and beneficiaries of international protection have been relocated or resettled to various other developed countries since 2005.
