Humanity & Inclusion in Uganda
Our team has been in Uganda since 2009, helping victims of landmines and other explosive remnants of war to recover through physical rehabilitation, psychological support, and job training.
Although Uganda has been landmine free since 2012, resulting in the closure of Humanity & Inclusion operation in 2013, the country is now being affected by the conflict in South Sudan. More than 1 million South Sudanese refugees have sought safety in Uganda.
While the country’s generous asylum policy is one of the most progressive in the world, the continued influx is straining host communities and service delivery.
Our Current Work
In response to the refugee situation, Humanity & Inclusion reopened its operations in the country in 2015. The Humanity & Inclusion team now runs rehabilitation, inclusive education, and psychosocial projects for refugees and Ugandans. We employ 65 staff in total who work attentively to:
Assistance to Refugees
To help the large number of refugees entering Uganda, Humanity & Inclusion works to identify vulnerable populations such as people with disabilities and children to facilitate their access to humanitarian services and other aid.
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.
The organization also conducts a census of people with disabilities, referring them to relevant services.
Our Past Work
Humanity & Inclusion has been in Uganda since 2019, working towards healing for ALL people. Over time, our work has evolved to meet the needs of the communities we serve.
