Once again we want to share with you some news about Uganda that is not adequately covered by the International press. However, on April 26, 2017 there was an article written for the Associated Press by Jerome Delay that did tell about the great humanitarian work that is being done in Uganda to welcome and shelter refugees from the conflict in South Sudan. This country shares a border with Uganda just to the north, and since July 2016 more than 500,000 refugees have left South Sudan to find safety in Uganda. This brings the total of South Sudanese refugees in Uganda to nearly 800,000. They are housed in the Bidi Bidi refugee camp near Arua in northern Uganda. (We gave a borehole to Modern Secondary School Ocoko in Arua last year). This camp is one of the largest refugee camps in the world, and is now overflowing, so the government of Uganda is establishing one or more new refugee camps to accommodate more people. The first is in Imvepi, also in the northern region of Uganda. Altogether, there are now over a million refugees in camps throughout Uganda, including people from Somalia, Burundi, Congo, Rwanda, and South Sudan. (Uganda’s population is 37,000,000). The World Bank has called Uganda’s refugee policy “one of the most progressive and generous in the world”. Under their policy, refugees have the right to work and travel freely, and are given a small plot of land to plant some crops, and materials to make a simple house. And they are doing all this without the world spotlight, and without the public dissention heard from developed countries in Europe who attempt to accommodate Syrian refugees. Don’t you agree that the Ugandan people deserve our help as they struggle to develop their own society? Whatever we can do to help with clean water, health and education for Ugandan citizens is so important! They are quickly becoming a model nation for the African continent.
