WHAT WE ARE DOING
Uganda's refugee policy gives us and other NGOs the opportunity to implement sustainable interventions for populations affected by a large-scale humanitarian crisis.
Our integrated and innovative programmes address the cause and effects of malnutrition in the long-term.
Our work includes:
- Training local health volunteers to educate their community members on improving nutrition for children two years old and pregnant and lactating women
- Building additional latrines and handwashing facilities and promoting healthy hygiene practices in schools and health centres in areas that have have an influx of refugees
In the areas we work, household food producation has increased, diets are more diverse, and people consume more fruits and vegetables compared to refugee and host communities in other districts.
