March 2018 – Uganda hosts the largest number of refugees in Africa, more than 1.4 million, with roughly two thirds of them having arrived from South Sudan since July 2016. This large and rapid influx has strained the humanitarian response capacity in northern Uganda to near breaking. New refugee settlements almost immediately reach full capacity, while service providers struggle to meet the most basic needs of the community. Overall, South Sudanese make up more than three quarters of the refugee population in Uganda (more than 1 million people). With GAC’s support, Save the Children Canada is providing support for much-needed healthcare (including sexual and reproductive health) and livelihoods protection for an estimated 15,500 South Sudanese refugees and host communities in the Yumbe district of Uganda. Project activities include: (1) providing training, equipment and supplies to local health facilities; and (2) providing training and livelihoods opportunities to vulnerable youth.
