More about South Sudan Refugee Relief

We are asking for your help to provide support for those whose lives have been devastated due to the recent fighting in South Sudan. In early July, hundreds of people were killed and tens of thousands were displaced. Between July 7–25, an estimated 37,500 South Sudanese refugees crossed into Uganda where CLWR partner’s Lutheran World Federation-Uganda (LWF-Uganda) has mobilized rapid crisis support at refugee reception centres.
 
The rapid influx of refugees into Uganda is straining the capacity of the existing settlements and service centers. The UNHCR and its partners, including LWF-Uganda, are struggling to respond, but their resources are severely constrained. 

In response to these urgent needs, CLWR is helping meet the basic hygiene, shelter and education needs of new arrivals within Adjumani district, Uganda. CLWR will continue to monitor the evolving situation within the region and search for further opportunities to meet the needs of those displaced.
 
Donations will go where needed most. For example, funds could provide clothing, personal and household hygiene supplies, and food vouchers for the most vulnerable people. It could support peace building initiatives and vocational training for women. It could rehabilitate schools and provide school supplies to children, or it could help provide psychosocial support to youth and young adults.
