Uganda - December 2018 Situation Report
- South Sudanese refugees: West Nile is still receiving South Sudanese Refugees. In December 2018, 271 South Sudanese arrived in West Nile. They have been resettled in Omugo, an extension of Rhino camp.
- From dependency to self-reliance: More refugees are embracing income generating activities such as running small enterprises like grocery shops, salons, crop production for sale, shops and restaurants to boost their household incomes. Funding to sustain this is required in order to help more refugee families become self-reliant.
- Funding: World Vision is grateful for the sustained support of our donors and partners who support our work and calls upon donors and other willing partners to prioritize long term funding as we transition our work to empowering refugees with self-reliance and income generating activities.
- Only 19% of caregivers are able to provide for their children: Children are at risk of malnutrition if World Vision and other actors do not support sustainable livelihood opportunities.
- World Vision continues to positively respond to the DRC refugees who are fleeing violent conflicts. In the month of December, there were 855 new arrivals majority of whom are women and children were settled in Kyaka and Kyangwali.
