Action Against Hunger’s therapeutic nutrition programs—and capacity-building support for Uganda’s health system—provided lifesaving treatment for 35,000 severely malnourished children in 2011.
In 2011, some five years after the collapse of the Lord’s Resistance Army insurgency, Uganda has reinforced stability in its troubled North, bringing 20+ years of insecurity and displacement to a close. Action Against Hunger has provided a range of support to the 1.8 million people leaving the displacement camps to return to their ancestral homes—a massive migration that has multiplied the needs for clean water, sanitation, and agricultural and livelihood support. In Uganda’s Northeast, Action Against Hunger has worked with the pastoralist communities of the Karamoja region, addressing water and sanitation needs, high malnutrition rates, and the need for diversified livelihoods.
