As the situation in South Sudan continues to deteriorate Uganda now hosts over 500,000 refugees as people continue to flee.
World Vision is the UN lead agency supporting refugees with food and essential items in Northern Uganda. We are also providing child friendly spaces for children to recover, learn and grow and are working to ensure there is adequate water, sanitation and hygiene in the camps.
Akol, who grew up as a refugee and now works in South Sudan with World Vision as a Nutrition Officer, shares her story.
Each day more families arrive at Debaga Camp (pictured) south-east of Mosul. Often they journey over night to escape the battle in Mosul with only the clothes on their backs across harsh terrain in temperatures as low as -5 degrees.
World Vision is on the ground as people arrive, distributing food and core relief items, improving access to water, sanitation and hygiene facilities and providing Child Friendly Spaces to help children recover, learn and grow.
