DISASTER RELIEF
In a climate of 17 years civil conflict in Northern Uganda, the level of Humanitarian Crisis has raised eyebrows of many stakeholders. The 17 Years notorious LRA insurgency has resulted in massive displacement of people, economic stagnation, destruction of property worthy billions of money, abduction of children whom they have turned into Child Soldiers and, in the case of young girls as sex slaves. The people of Acholi have lost access to cultivation fields & income generating activities leading to a situation of total dependency and a need for assistance.
Parents cannot anymore afford to provide for their Children in terms of food, education & medical. Majority of parents have abandoned their villages, and camps due to lack of food, inadequate security and overcrowding and they moved to the municipality (Gulu) where security is fairly assured. An estimated number of 60% children survive on one meal per day, which is either served at school or home, while a big number of children survive without a single meal the entire day. Over 1.6 Million people in Northern and Eastern Uganda are displaced by the civil conflict living in IDP camps.
Such people are in great need of:-
- Food aid
- Clothes
- Blankets
- Medicines
- Tents and tarpaulins
- Scholastic materials
