Project Report | Feb 16, 2023
Harsh conditions

By Hellen Ijangolet | Director

To make ends meet, a number of refugees, particularly in south western Uganda, work as casual labourers on farms while some lease or borrow land to grow food. Others sell vegetables at market stalls. A few volunteer with NGOs in the settlements. 

 Everyday, as they go out to the community to meet refugee families and hear what they need, our staff and volunteers in Bidi Bidi see small ways that they could make a big difference. Here are some examples of the small projects they’ve completed that have really made an impact for the people who’ve found a haven at Bidi Bidi settlement.

In addition to all of our formal work with the refugee community in Bidi Bidi, we’ll continue looking for and doing small, doable projects like these that can make a huge difference in people’s lives.

Thank you for your generousity our team worked tiredly to see the beneficiaries receive each 25kg of maize flour, 10kgs of bean and 2 bars of soap.

This was made possible with the funds from people like you to make their lives easy and enjoyable. Currently about 25% of the refugees in the settlements are supplied with sufficient food. But the situation in the host communities is also precarious.

We want to say thank you!

We know there are a lot of other ways you could have spent this money, so we feel privileged that you chose to invest in our work. You are now part of our community and we're honored to have you. Help us continue to feed these families in need
