Challenge

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.

Solution

I Live Again Uganda provides a life transforming and culturally sensitive trauma counseling programs. Individuals, groups and families are able to receive the alleviation of the affects of trauma that they have experienced. Our programs helps trauma survivors with emotional resilience and forgiveness. Addressing these areas not only will help individuals find emotional healing but it also assists in bringing reconciliation between different tribes. This will aid for a better South Sudan.

Long-Term Impact

This project will provide alleviation of trauma of 450 refugees and refugee leaders from South Sudan. The program addresses emotional resilience and forgiveness. This will address and assist in reconciliation and greater understanding between tribes. This will have a positive long term impact for the future of the nation of South Sudan. No one should have to suffer from hidden wounds of war. We can alleviate the trauma of each refugee so they can have a bright, hopeful and free future.
