Innovation Description

Currently, Uganda is hosting about one million South Sudanese refugees many of whom are vulnerable women and children who have witnessed or experienced some forms of violence. As numbers of refugees surge due to the ongoing insecurity and famine in South Sudan, and reduced international funding, refugees have witnessed cuts in their food rations and essential health services affecting the livelihood and wellbeing of the most vulnerable women and unaccompanied children.
