Humanitarian Action

Uganda has been experiencing a growing need for humanitarian action due to increasing local disasters, protracted conflicts within the Great Lakes region resulting in mass displacements, and epidemics like Ebola and COVID-19.

Climate change, political instability in the region and the proliferation of viruses are expected to further increase the need for humanitarian aid in the years ahead. In Uganda, the negative effects of disasters are more pronounced in refugee hosting districts, and the poorest regions.

Moreover, women and girls, especially women and girls with disabilities, older women and refugee women and girls, are usually the most affected by the impact of these disasters and at the same time, they are the ones on the frontline to combat and adapt to the effects of them.

CARE will deliver gender-responsive humanitarian assistance emphasizing disaster preparedness, inclusiveness, resilience humanitarian development nexus and localization.
