The funds will support the IFRC Emergency Appeal operation in the West Nile region of Uganda (MDRUG038). The conflict in South Sudan, which began in December 2013, has affected every single household in the country. Renewed conflict in July 2016, led to a new influx of refugees. In April 2017 a total 816,041 South Sudanese have sought refuge in Uganda. The influx shows little sign of abating. Refugee influx from South Sudan to Uganda Activities will be implemented in Imvepi settlement, which is receiving the new influx of South Sudanese refugees. Please see map below for geographical location.
The support aims to reach 20.000 persons with hygiene promotion and 500 households (1000 persons) with access to household latrines.
