Our support in 2015 for War Child went to two areas:
Refugees from the South Sudan in Uganda: Within the South Sudanese refugee settlements in Uganda, overcrowding, the disproportionate number of women and children, ethnic tensions and inadequate services have combined to create the pre-conditions for violence against women and children. In response, War Child implemented programming in eleven settlements in Adjumani (a district in northern Uganda), providing urgent services to the most vulnerable. These programs focused on sexual and gender based violence prevention and legal protection. War Child is expanding its programs there to three new districts.
Syrian Refugee Crisis: War Child is one of many providing relief services to refugees arising out of the nightmare in and spilling out of Syria. War Child is in Jordan delivering services with a focus on child protection, education and youth development. It plans to set up similar programs in Lebanon, Iraq and Syria.
