Responding for the 200,000 refugees in Bidibidi Settlement
Project for American Refugee Committee

Refugee families in Bidibidi Settlement need protection, shelter, clean water and health care

Refugees are currently coming 4,000 per day into Uganda from South Sudan. What was a tiny village a few months ago, is now home to 195,342 South Sudanese refugees. The settlement is called Bidibidi. American Refugee Committee is responding to help refugees who are seeking safe haven in Bidibidi Settlement.

Atomic Data and CEO Jim Wolford have stepped forward to help these families. If we can raise $25,000, Atomic Data will match it. Will you join ARC and Atomic so we can help families in Bidibidi?
 
The needs are desperate and urgent in Bidibidi, including:
  • Improved protection for camp residents - solar lights are needed to illuminate the camp, as well as protection specifically for children and a place for people to go if they've been attacked or fear attack
  • Health Care - ambulances are needed, blood transfusion is a continuing challenge and is risking lives. There is a general lack of health workers needed to serve this large group of people, many of whom have suffered abuse, illness or malnutrition
  • Nutrition - more nutrition centers throughout the settlement are needed for infant and young child feeding
  • Water - as the camp population is growing, clean safe water is and will continue to be needed.
Refugees are fleeing violence, forced military recruitment of boys and men, the burning of villages and livestock, hunger and the lack of even the most basic services.

If you make a gift now...your donation will be matched by Atomic Data, and then will go directly to Uganda to help these families fleeing South Sudan.

Thank you so much for considering supporting this important effort.
