ADRA and Better Shelter

Uganda borders two of the world’s largest humanitarian crises in South Sudan and in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Both are consequences of the gigantic scale of violence, long-term civil wars, famine and epidemics and have forced over 1.4 million refugees to leave their homes and seek safety in Uganda. Many settlements in Uganda lack medical staff and resources required to meet the needs, and a particularly difficult situation prevails in the refugee settlement Bidi-Bidi, which hosts 280,000 refugees.

8 Better Shelter units were donated to ADRA Sweden for a pilot project for community activity place in the refugee camps Bidibidi where ADRA Uganda has operations. Th pilot includes using the shelter for group meetings, safe-space, training, etc.
