BUJUMBURA, BURUNDI – As World Refugee Day approaches, ADRA is responding to the rapidly deteriorating situation in Burundi amidst the upcoming presidential election and recent coup attempts.
Violence broke in Burundi’s capital, Bujumbura, and in Makamba province, on April 26 and has spread into towns across the country. The uproar began when President Pierre Nkurunziza's announced his bid to stand for a third consecutive term and security forces began cracking down on protests.

In response to the fighting that broke out in South Sudan in December, ADRA has been providing emergency aid to internally displaced persons (IDPs) and refugees who have fled into neighboring countries.
Since December 15, an estimated 716,000 people are internally displaced. Another 156,800 have run to bordering countries to escape the tribal and political tensions that have caused thousands of deaths.

Ten thousand are reported dead and more than half a million people displaced as a result of ongoing violence in South Sudan, with leading aid groups calling for assistance to meet the growing humanitarian needs of those displaced into neighbouring countries.
“Reports indicate that up to 70% of those fleeing their homes are women and children,” says Beryl Hartmann, Humanitarian Program Officer at the Adventist Development and Relief Agency (ADRA) Australia. It is vital we protect and support those made most vulnerable in situations like this.”
ADRA is a global humanitarian organization of the Seventh-day Adventist Church that demonstrates God’s love and compassion. Today, the organization is responding to the DRC refugee influx in Uganda at the transit center in Bundibugyo. The refugees are fleeing from the fighting between the Congolese government army and the rebels of the Allied Democratic Forces. As of July 14th, the population registered by URCS in Bubandi Sub County was 66,139. So far the transit center has received more than 17,000 refugees.
The Adventist Development and Relief Agency (ADRA) Australia has joined with ADRA Uganda and other ADRA offices around the world to assist close to 30,000 refugees escaping ongoing civil war in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
Continued violent attacks between Congolese government forces and armed militia since presidential elections in November 2011 have uprooted thousands of families. As a result, more than 33,000 refugees have fled into neighbouring Uganda, stretching already inadequate national resources to breaking point.
