Uganda Refugee Project
Civil conflict that began in 2013, continues between the South Sudanese government forces and opposition forces. Since 2013 Uganda has received over 1 million South Sudanese refugees, fleeing the conflict. Uganda now hosts the most refugees on the African continent. While UNHCR and other government agencies are providing emergency support there is a greater network needed to ensure the well-being of refugees entering Uganda.
SIM and its partners, Africa Arise and ILA (I Live Again Uganda) are strategically targeting these refugee communities with the vision of providing trauma counselling together with the gospel message. Timing is critical as more and more traumatized refugees are arriving in resettlement camps in Northern Uganda every day. Will you help?
