Plan International Uganda is requesting your support and to #standwiththerefugees by donating any blankets, bedding, mattresses, kitchen utensils, shoes, toys and culturally appropriate clothing as these will be of great help to them. We will be putting up collection points in all our offices in Uganda (Kampala, Kamuli, Tororo, Lira). All items will then be dispatched to the refugee settlements in Adjumani district on 19th August 2016.
UNHCR reports estimate that in the last one month, over 50,000 South Sudanese have sought refuge in Northern Uganda and the numbers will soon rise to over 100,000. More than 95% of the new arrivals are women and children and children alone make up 75% of the new influx. Many of these children are separated and unaccompanied minors or orphans in need of protection services and psychosocial support having witnessed or experienced traumatic events.
