This project provided support for South Sudanese refugees and host community members in Adjumani, Uganda, in the following areas: water, sanitation and hygiene; non-food items; livelihoods and shelter.


Non-food items in Uganda
Yar Mabei Jok and her family received two mattresses, a blanket, soap, two jerry cans and utensils among other items. "These things are very useful to us because we were sleeping on the ground and now we use mattresses," she says. "I appreciate the support of CLWR, the government of Uganda and the Lutheran World Federation for supporting my livelihood."

Shelters in Uganda
Tukuls—round huts—are a common type of shelter in refugee settlements in Uganda.


Bol Ajok
Nine-year-old Bol Ajok is grateful for the two tukuls—round houses—that CLWR constructed for his family. "Before we used to keep bags of rations and other items in the house—it was uncomfortable," he says. "Now we are comfortable because we have houses with good space."


Florence Dipio
Florence Dipio draws water from a borehole established in 2015 in her community of Russia East, Adjumani. It used to take at least two hours waiting in line to access water at one of two other water access points in the village and it could sometimes take between six and seven hours.
