Story

In May-June 2018 the research team including Helen Liebling, Hazel Barrett Lilly Artz Faddy Gladys Canogura and our driver Eriab Kalele worked in three refugee settlements in Adjumani and Bidi Bidi. Following the research interviews we were able to donate the crowdfunding raised so far to South Sudanese women and men refugee survivors of sexual and gender-based violence and torture in Adjumani and Bidi Bidi refugee settlements. All were very grateful and have been able to set up peer support groups, income-generating schemes and use the funding towards their own priority needs. We aim to return in November 2018 to disseminate our research findings and we would like to provide further support to the refugees we worked with. We would be grateful for any donations towards this.

According to agencies working on the ground in Uganda, where most of the refugees have been arriving from the conflict across the border, food supply lines are being shut down and distribution of aid is becoming increasing irregular."

Over a million and a half South Sudanese women, men and children have had to flee into northern Uganda to escape conflict, famine and human rights violations. They are living in refugee settlements in Northern Uganda.

Refugees short of basic needs

Uganda at breaking point

In January 2018 we interviewed South Sudanese refugees about their experiences in settlements in Adjumani and Yumbe Districts as part of research funded by the British Academy. We ask you to donate generously so we can take some money to assist South Sudanese refugees and their children with their basic needs whilst disseminating our research findings in November 2018.

Thanks very much for your assistance Helen

I have worked with survivors of conflict sexual and gender-based violence and torture since 1998. I have carried out several action research projects in Sub-Saharan Africa. I hope that this information is used to improve policies and services that enhance survivors lives.
