Uganda :


In Uganda, more than one out of five people are living in poverty. The country is still struggling to recover from its wartime history despite economic growth in recent years. In addition, Uganda is the African country that houses the most refugees, mainly from South Sudan, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Burundi, and Somalia. Basic infrastructure such as medical care and water supply were already inadequate and are now facing new pressure. The refugee reception policy differs from that of other countries. Instead, refugees are hosted in villages and not in camps. They are then given a piece of land to cultivate and the ability to work and travel. The goal? A better integration within the welcoming community.

In this country, the focus of Caritas International is on those who are the most vulnerable, among both the host community and displaced persons to build their resilience, increase social cohesion, and protect them. All this is so that they can provide for their basic needs.
