Refugee crisis in Uganda
Fighting in Uganda’s neighboring countries has pushed hundreds of thousands of refugees into border areas within the last few years. Homes are looted, towns change hands between forces, and both men and women suffer violence as a weapon of war.
This puts intense pressure on a system that is still struggling to recover and meet the needs of its own people. It is vital that enough support is in place to help the system heal and continue to grow.
Most recently, refugees have fled into Uganda to escape conflict in South Sudan
, Burundi, and the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC)
