MANDATE

Humanity & Inclusion helps victims of landmines and other explosive remnants of war (ERW) to recover through physical rehabilitation, psychological support, and job training. Staff members also educate other Ugandans about the risks posed by these weapons. The organization is also conducting a census of people with disabilities, referring them to relevant services. The organization has worked in Uganda since 2009, and employs 20 national staff members and eight expatriates. 

BACKGROUND

Uganda hosts the largest amount of refugees of all African countries, with a total of 1.3 million refugees. Humanity & Inclusion began working in Uganda in 2009 and after suspending its operations in 2013, has relaunched programs in 2017. After enjoying relative political stability over the past decade, Uganda has now been directly affected by the conflict in South Sudan, with more than 1 million refugees fleeing the violence and seeking shelter in Uganda, together with 300,000 nationals from neighboring countries. Uganda has adopted a generous asylum policy, with refugees offered freedom of movement, along with the right to work, own assets and access education and health services. 

ACTIONS

Assistance to Refugees

Humanity & Inclusion supports the large number of refugees entering Uganda, most of whom have fled the conflict in South Sudan. The organization works to identify vulnerable populations such as people with disabilities and children to facilitate their access to humanitarian services and other other aid.

Mental Health

Humanity & Inclusion offers refugees psychosocial support and mental health services while also providing rehabilitation care and distributing mobility aids. In order to improve the refugees' resilience and food security, Humanity & Inclusion provides financial assistance to refugee families.
