Spotlight on the Refugee crisis – Malteser International: Africa

In DR Congo at the beginning of May 2016, Malteser International began a project to improve health and hygiene services for 21,000 refugees and vulnerable locals by delivering medication, financing the purchase of medical equipment, training medical staff, and constructing sanitary facilities at health centers.

In South Sudan, Malteser International has been distributing essential food aid to internally-displaced people in the city of Wau and has recently introduced a cash voucher system.

In Uganda, home to around 270,000 refugees from South Sudan, Malteser International works to provide aid to the refugees living in Rhino Camp.
