Scotland to offer assistance to South Sudan refugees in Uganda
July 17th 2018 (Nyamilepedia) – South Sudanese refugees currently seeking safety at a UN camp in northern Uganda, are expected to benefit from a humanitarian emergency pledge by the Scottish government.
“The conflicts in Syria, Yemen and South Sudan have caused terrible suffering. It has led to the large scale displacement of local populations, with severe humanitarian consequences and an urgent need for assistance from the rest of the world,” said the top diplomat.
“We want Scotland to be a good global citizen and our Humanitarian Emergency Fund aims to provide emergency life-saving aid to those most in need,” she further said adding that “Our HEF panel member agencies are ready to provide in-country support to the innocent people caught up in these conflicts, many of whom are children. This financial support will help to provide much needed assistance.”
