Uganda, the so-called “pearl of Africa“, is one of the better developed nations in the east of the continent, but twenty years of civil war in the north of the country have left their mark. On top of this, the country is burdened with massive numbers of refugees from the neighbouring countries of DR Congo and South Sudan

The official position of the government is that Uganda needs to help its neighbours in need, and accept refugees into its own villages and communities. The regions affected by this phenomenon, however, are also often suffering from drought, a lack of drinking water, and other structural weaknesses.
