There are now over one million South Sudanese refugees in Uganda

South Sudan’s civil war is in its fifth year. Tens of thousands have been killed and 1.5 million are on the brink of starvation. Every day, more South Sudanese arrive in Uganda. It now has the world’s third largest refugee population. Your support is urgently needed to maintain food assistance.

Syrian refugee families urgently need your help

Imagine if war and conflict engulfed your home and you were left with no option but to escape your country to seek safety. On top of that, imagine if you couldn’t provide basic needs for your children and worried whether they would have something to eat.

This is the reality for Mohamad’s family. They fled Syria four years ago and now live in a single room in a makeshift tent in Lebanon’s Beqaa Valley. To make things even harder, his children lost their mother to cancer. Mohamad does all he can to try to ease his children’s heartbreak. Despite this, the family still has hope and chooses to remain strong in the face of adversity.

We sometimes skip a dinner or two but I don’t care for myself. I care about my children, it’s all about being able to feed all the children.
