There was never much. Now there’s not enough.
Ration cuts have forced refugee and vulnerable families to the brink. Because of the pandemic, food rations have been cut and measures to contain the spread of the virus have severely hampered food distribution.
In Uganda, more than 195,000 children are suffering from acute malnutrition and more than 370,000 people are on the brink of famine. While Uganda is the largest refugee-hosting country in Africa with over a million refugees, the situation is dire in many other countries as well. In difficult places such as South Sudan, Somalia and the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), survival has become a daily struggle.
Your donation today can help distribute emergency food to refugee and vulnerable families and provide Ready-to-Use Therapeutic Food (RUTF) for severely malnourished children.
Thanks to contributions from the World Food Programme and international partners, your donation multiplies 5X in value to provide things like emergency food distribution, nutritional supplements, agricultural training, food security and more.
