The situation is desperate, but you can help
Oudo* is just 11 years old, yet has already suffered so much. When his village was attacked, his family was forced to flee, leaving everything behind – including the school that Oudo loved attending.
The family now live in cramped conditions in a camp filled with thousands of other people who have also fled for their lives. ‘We are suffering,’ Oudo shares. ‘At home I ate well, every day. Here we hardly eat and are never full. I miss my house, but I won’t go back because there are lots of wars.’
‘I have nothing...’ Oudo’s mother, Bamanyisa*, adds. ‘I have no clothes, no kitchen utensils and no mattresses. Even finding something to eat is a serious problem… I fear my children will get sick because they do not eat enough.’
