A war in South Sudan is sending thousands of refugees across the border into northern Uganda, and now Catholic agencies—along other Christian charities—have moved to provide assistance.
At the center of the relief efforts are nearly 1 million refugees who fled torture, killing, rape, and other abuses, and are now living in several sprawling displaced-persons camps in the East Africa nation. Each day, more refugees arrive at the settlements, putting pressure on local resources. The war in Africa’s newest nation is now in its fifth year and hope of finding a solution seems dim, in spite of the opposing parties signing peace agreements.
