Description and results

Description

September 2017 – Uganda hosts the largest number of refugees in Africa, more than 1.3 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 support, CARE Canada is providing support for much-needed healthcare (including sexual and reproductive health), shelter, and protection for at least 26,000 South Sudanese refugees and host communities in the Arua district of Uganda. Activities include: (1) provision of support (training, equipment, supplies) for local health facilities; (2) construction of temporary shelters to house new arrivals; and (3) enhancement of available protection services for survivors of SGBV and other vulnerable persons.

Expected results

The expected outcomes for this project include: (1) improved access to healthcare; (2) improved access to shelter; and (3) improved access to protection services amongst South Sudanese refugees and host communities in Uganda. The expected ultimate outcome is lives saved, suffering alleviated and human dignity maintained in countries experiencing humanitarian crises or acute food insecurity.
