In Summary

  • Refugee Solidarity summit in Kampala brought in pledges of $358.6m (Ushs1.25 trillion), which although was praised by President Museveni and the UN Secretary General António Guterres as a good starting point, is still far less of the earlier intended goal by $1.6b (Ushs5 trillion).

  • The lukewarm response to Uganda’s solidarity with a refugee population of close to 1.3 million refugees out of which 950,000 are from South Sudan, is a reflection of the growing void in humanitarian aid funding for the South Sudan crisis.

The South Sudanese refugee response plan so far remains only 14 per cent funded.

Kampala, the capital of Uganda has been a habitat for refugees from the great lakes region for several decades. While all refugees suffer the effects of forced migration, female refugees continue to experience exceptional suffering.

In 2013, Refugee Law Project through the Mental Health and Psychosocial Wellbeing Program carried out a study on the psychosocial challenges faced by female refugees in Kampala among 153 women and girls.
