Against Hunger: Your Christmas Donation for Refugee Children in Uganda

Adjumani, Uganda

Fugitive families in northern Uganda are faced with nothing. Amref Health Africa supports these people in a new beginning: with food supplies for children against the greatest need and sustainable help through demonstration garden projects.

About this project

Your donation offers perspectives!

Nowhere in Africa live more refugees than in Uganda. A total of 1.5 million people are seeking refuge from war, hunger and hopelessness in the country. Many things are lacking - especially food. Children in particular suffer from the health consequences of malnutrition. Their physical development is often restricted and their immune system weakly developed.  They are dependent on urgent support! 

Amref Health Africa's school nutrition programme has been running successfully since 2017 and has already ensured that 12,000 children in Adjumani receive a daily strengthening meal at school.  For the parents, this is an important argument for sending their child to school at all. Those who are able to read and write will fibd it easier to shape their future.
But as the financial means are running out, we urgently ask for your support today. If we can no longer feed all the children with a school lunch - the only reliable meal a day - it will have dramatic consequences for their health and school attendance. 

Please help us to prevent these children from growing up as a lost generation!

We also create sustainable perspectives: In school gardens the children are taught how to cultivate agricultural crops.  This valuable knowledge can then be put into practice at home so that families can provide for themselves in the long term and a healthier diet is made possible.
