Grace Mutuwa used to live in her house in Bududa, a district in eastern Uganda. But, like many others, she was made homeless last July when heavy rains caused landslides on the slopes of Mount Elgon burying her home. ShelterBox responded and delivered tents to families in need, heavily pregnant Grace being one of them.
A ShelterBox Response Team (SRT) travelled to assess the need following further flooding in northeastern Uganda in the Kibaale District and the Teso and Lango sub-regions earlier this month. With no need found, the SRT returned to Bududa where they met Grace.
Fighting between government troops and M23 rebel forces in North Kivu in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) has forced thousands of families to flee their homes into Uganda.
Many crossed the border through Kisoro and travelled 20 kilometres to Nyakabande transit centre, bringing the number of refugees there to over 16,000. From there, many are being relocated 370 kilometres away to Rwamwanja Refugee Settlement in Kamwenge district, which currently has 13,600 refugees.
