Bulecheke Camp Situation

Much of the surviving population in Nametsi as well as thirteen other surrounding at risk villages were resettled to nearby Bulecheke Camp. Our assessment of Bulecheke Camp was limited to key informant interviews because Makerere University recently completed a larger evaluation of the camp population and living conditions. The overcrowded camp was originally planned as a temporary settlement for a population of 4,000; however, the current camp population exceeds 8,170, more than double the planned capacity.
