Ukraine war brings ration cuts to refugees in Uganda
As the world sees inflation rise due to the war in Ukraine, refugees in Uganda are struggling to survive. Aid agencies are being forced to cut rations to refugees.
The World Food Program, the world's largest humanitarian organization focused on hunger and food security, has just announced its plan to reduce food rations to refugees.
“As global hunger soars way beyond the resources available to feed all the families who desperately need WFP’s help, we are being forced to make the heartbreaking decision to cut food rations for refugees who rely on us for their survival,” said WFP Executive Director David Beasley. “Without urgent new funds to support refugees - one of the world’s most vulnerable and forgotten groups of people - many facing starvation will be forced to pay with their lives.”
Today, ration cuts of up to 50 per cent affect three in four refugees supported by WFP in East Africa.
If a refugee chooses the cash option for their ration, they receive less than $5 per month/person.
Refugee Relief is working with the Church to bring relief to the most vulnerable refugees in Uganda. Your gift today will deliver life-saving food in the name of Jesus to those who are suffering the most.
