Thousands of young lives have been affected by conflict, drought and famine in South Sudan. Children have fled for their lives across the border to Uganda, becoming refugees. They have travelled a long distance, many without parents or families. While we can’t rewind the past, we can help restart their future.

Let's make a difference for South Sudanese children in Uganda

Let's make a difference for South Sudanese children in Uganda
The money raised from this year’s 40 Hour Famine will support South Sudanese refugees in Northern Uganda with nutritious food, clean water, safe toilets, a place to live, and education and play in child friendly spaces. 

We are supporting people as they cross the border with emergency food, as well as setting them up in their new homes in the refugee camp. We are ensuring children who are separated from their families are in foster care and providing them psychosocial support through child friendly spaces. We are also providing clean water through new boreholes and sanitation facilities to prevent sickness spreading. 

As well as providing emergency response items we are planning for rehabilitation, resilience and self-reliance by helping communities establish agriculture, learn vocational skills and access credit to establish small businesses.

This year we’ve partnered with the good people at Freeset and Common Good to bring you a limited edition tee. When you purchase a 40 Hour Famine tee, it’s more than a stitched piece of fabric, each one tells a story of freedom. Freeset gives women in India the opportunity to regain control of their lives in a caring community, by providing a new job, and a new beginning.

Tees are available to pre-order until 30th March. Good things take time, so once we’ve received your order, you can expect to receive your tee in the first week of May 2018.
