Background:

Ongoing political conflict has caused widespread displacement, raging violence and increasing rates of food insecurity in South Sudan. 1 in 5 people in South Sudan have been displaced, and thousands are flooding into neighbouring countries every day. Many refugees are crossing into Uganda, where over 82,000 people have sought refuge since July 1st 2016. Uganda is now facing a crisis of their own as they seek to care for the incoming South Sudanese refugees, 87% of whom are women and children.

Project goals:

  • Distribution of nutritional food supplements in 16 villages to 2,000 pregnant women and 500 persons with special needs in Rhino resettlement camps.
  • 2,500 beneficiaries will besupported on a monthly basis for three months.

We are also responding in Kenya and Somalia. Learn more about our response>>
