Poverty Is Prevalent Among Refugees In Uganda

I am waiting for someone to pay my school fees!
I am waiting for someone to pay my school fees!
We appreciate you for sponsoring refugee kids in exile.
 
At third quarter of this reporting:
Your cash pays the school fees for three refugee children in Gulu. With money from Trolltech Foundation, HO continues to pay school fees of 4 children in nursery school, two students to vocational institute, and 14 pupils in primary education.
 
But we need your help to send 300 children to school in Uganda. Most of them just fled from South Sudan war to live in exile.
 
Poverty is prevalent amongst South Sudanese families in exile, and children become orphans due to WAR. By sponsoring a refugee child, you will help HO gives unlucky kid care and education. HO is a vetted charity when it comes to providing help. We believe that the only way to destroy poverty is through education and teaching the next generation how to fight corruption and build a peaceful country.

We are asking you to give a monthly donation of $30 to send a child to a boarding school in northern Uganda.
 
In a next three months, HO will be posting a new field update, to report to you the progress of this cause, and how your gift is positively impacting on the lives of the refugees in need.
 
It was the bodyguards for rebel leader and presidential guards who fought each other in earlier July sparking days of violence which killed many hundreds of soldiers and civilians. The two forces had battled each other, almost five years to the day South Sudan declared independence from Sudan. Following the orders from the leadership on both sides, the clashes ceased temporarily in late in July. The rebels then moved their based outside Juba in an attempt to save peace which both parties signed.
 
In August fighting was in the outskirt of Juba in which the oppositions accused the government of attacking their positions. The rebels regrouped and fled to Congo with Riek Machar, their leader. Over the last few months, the citizens have expressed dissent against the government, as a result of this, the rebellion is growing rapidly in Equatoria states, a region which kept itself neutral for two years’ civil conflict in Upper Nile State. 61 other tribes are targeting ethnic Dinka. The humanitarian needs are going to be very great after this, Director General for RRC, told reporters. They are going to need food, shelter, water, he said, adding that the need for shelter and clean water was pressing for those living in a Displaced facility within Juba town.
 
War-torn South Sudan is suffering a rise in hate speech and incitement to violence against certain ethnic groups which could result in mass atrocities if the government does not act, the U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights said Tuesday.
Animosity between South Sudan’s Dinka ethnic group and the people of its southwestern Equatoria region surged earlier this month when buses on roads south of the capital Juba were attacked as they passed through Equatoria region
