Episcopal Relief & Development is proud to announce the receipt of a grant from the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID).
Episcopal Relief and Development is providing emergency assistance to communities affected by severe flooding in Ghana and Uganda. Nearly 17 African countries have been affected by heavy rains which began in early June. Approximately 1.5 million people have been impacted, including more than 680,000 in West Africa alone.
Ghana has been hardest hit by torrential rains which have left close to 275,000 people displaced in the Upper East, Upper West and Northern Regions. In the Upper East Region, over 25 people have died and more than 51,000 are internally displaced.
Episcopal Relief and Development is helping children in the Diocese of Soroti in the Church of Uganda after rebel attacks in the area. Attacks in the Kaberamaido District, including one on a secondary school near Soroti in eastern Uganda, have forced thousands of people to flee. Thousands of children have been kidnapped in the past year. Children are being used as soldiers, laborers, and sexual slaves.
