This project will provide culturally sensitive life transforming trauma counseling programs to 450 South Sudanese refugees who have been traumatized by civil and tribal tensions and have fled to the neighboring nation of Uganda and are living in refugee settlements.
Right now, there are over 1,400,000 refugees in Uganda. The majority of refugees are from South Sudan. Civil unrest, tribal divisions and violence have caused many to run to the neighboring nation of Uganda. Many have experienced and witnessed extreme forms of violence including rape. The hidden wounds of war are internal and are often neglected in refugee response plans. Trauma can lead to depression, anxiety, addictions and other concerns that can have devastating long term affects.

Our programs helps trauma survivors with emotional resilience and forgiveness.
