Rehan visited the Nyakabande Refugee Transit Centre in Kisoro, Uganda.

The visit was inspirational as it shows the human spirit is one that is able to overcome any hardship, but it was heart-breaking as there shouldn’t even be such a thing as a ‘refugee camp’ – there shouldn’t be children separated from their parents through conflict and having to live in temporary settlements.”

ForAfrika is responsible for the sanitation and hygiene at the refugee camp. A thankless undertaking, but of utmost importance if you think that around 30,000 refugees are living in a temporary settlement, each there for around three months.

The volunteers and employees take so much pride in what they are doing. You can see that it isn’t just about the “what they do”, but about the “why” they do what they do. And that is inspirational!
