Food for Refugees in Uganda

For those with any understanding of the function of government, it is common knowledge that UN is complicit in the death of great many civilians. Some of us may be familiar with UN Agenda 21, a worldwide agreement concluded in June of 1992. Concerning itself mostly with ‘social & economic dimensions’ & the ‘conservation & management of resources for development,’ it coordinates the ‘strengthening of roles’ worldwide & the ‘implementation of those policies.’ What is little more known about this policy, (which we are in the midst of), is UN Agenda 22- signed by 145 nations starting in 2007 implementing ’22 principles of good behavior’ to be followed by state & local authorities. In gist, corporate governance. The refugee camps we are seeing created today in the name of humanitarian effort are permanent. THESE PEOPLE NEED FOOD. What we need to do is get the people of these refugee camps food without them having to go through the experience of the normal food riots that are induced by such deliveries. The chaos that ensues due to UN management of normal implementations of basic necessities can only play into the chaos needed by government to induce further totalitarian measures that only discriminate & oppress an already repressed population of human beings. Even by accepting implementation of schools in these refugee camps further allows their policies to be accepted. Education is a need, a right, etc. Life is universal, such as is death. We must circumvent the UN or fall victim to the greatest catastrophe that has ever gripped the governance of this planet. – ed)

South Sudanese refugees in Uganda call for urgent action

June 25, 2017 (KAMPALA) – South Sudanese refugees have condemned the lack of health care services and the continued shortage of food within the resettlement camps.

The refugees have calling on world leaders to urgently support the Ugandan government to help fight the current crisis.

Nearly a million refugees have arrived in Uganda since the crisis erupted in Juba in July 2016, leaving Uganda as the country putting up with the largest number of refugees in the continent.

Joyce Night, a South Sudanese civilian who fled from Yei says refugees in Uganda are facing a catastrophic problem, such as food and health related issues.

She appealed for help for the refugees, pleading that something urgent is done to assist the situation urgently.

Lack of enough health care facilities in the camps is another major issue putting others’ lives at risk.

“If you met with a health worker she/he may give you a painkiller that is if you are lucky enough, but sometimes you can be sent home without any treatment, “said Night.

Night went on to say that most women would be willing to run businesses, but the lack of capital to start the business, poses a challenge and as a result, the women remain idle in the camps.

Food ratios have been reduced among the refugees in the camps, which has deepened the crisis of the refugees in the resettlement camps.

“People eat one meal a day, and those are good days, but at times some families sleep without any food,” she said, adding that the relationship with the host community was good despites the few reported cases between the refugees and Ugandans.

Joyce Night said that some of the host communities fight with the refugees as they go to collect firewood in the bush, but she said that the issue has been handled.

In the resettlement camps, there are a few water points that cause frequent fighting among the communities.
Bol Thomas, another South Sudanese refugee who lives in Rhino camp in the West-Nile echoed concerns on the refugees’ challenges in Uganda.

He narrated that too many children who were separated from their parents as they fled from South Sudan need an urgent assistant because they are exposed to many dangers.

Thomas said that children as young as below 15 years are at great risks, particularly the girls.

The lack of enough schools in the refugee camps also an enormous problem, with 100-200 children sharing one classroom. One secondary school among a few primary schools in the camps accommodates thousands of children.

Thomas went on to say that most of the children in the camps sometimes go to bed with empty stomachs and this exposes them to malnutrition.

“When you see me looking like a dead skeleton don’t think am sick, it is because we eat one meal a day. Sometimes you will go without anything to bed,” he told Sudan Tribune.

As Uganda is about to host the World Refugees Crisis on Thursday where the United Nation Secretary General Antonio Guterres and many dignitaries will come together.

The South Sudanese refugees urged the leaders of the world to urgently find an alternative solution to the refugee crisis.
