WHERE WE WORK

OUR COUNTRIES

Ethiopia has a long standing history of hosting refugees and it maintains an open door policy, giving humanitarian access and protection to refugees. Due to on going insecurity and instability within neighbouring states thousands of refugees have fled to Ethiopia.

As a result of neighbouring conflicts and severe regional droughts, the small country of Djibouti hosts over 25,000 refugees and asylum seekers mainly from Somalia, Ethiopia and Eritrea. Some refugees arrived over 20 years ago, while others have arrived more recently.

Uganda hosts the largest number of refugees in Africa. Most refugees are fleeing from South Sudan which is currently one of the world’s worst humanitarian crises. Since July 2016, nearly half a million refugees have fled the deadly fighting and sought safety in Uganda.
