For ZOA Uganda, 2016 was an ambitious year, with a diverse and innovative programme. We strengthened our relief operation in West Nile in response to the ongoing refugee crisis caused by devastating violence and hunger in South Sudan. We combined emergency interventions with longer-term recovery interventions. In the Rhino camp area, ZOA provided WASH support through water trucking, the construction of communal latrines and bath shelters and the installation of rainwater harvesting tanks. We also provided basic education support to both refugees and host communities, through permanent teacher housing, school feeding, school libraries, the provision of 300 go-to-school packages to extremely vulnerable pupils and 750 solar lights to school children and teachers.
