Supporting South Sudanese refugees in Uganda

Increasing violence in South Sudan is causing an influx of refugees fleeing to Uganda. This is putting pressure on the scarce services and resources available in the host communities.

Refugees just arrived in Adjumani district; Northern Uganda have received Non food items distributed by Plan International Uganda with support from Irish Aid

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.

By donating now, you can help them have a better life and live with dignity 

Plan International Uganda is working closely with the Office of the Prime Minister to meet various needs in the refugee settlements  by setting up child friendly spaces, shelters for persons with special needs, water and sanitation facilities and distribution of core relief items. Let us stand with the South Sudan refugees and welcome them to Uganda.
