South Sudan Refugee Response


Ongoing violence and instability in South Sudan has led to more than 260,000 people making the decision to flee their country and seek refuge in neighbouring Uganda.

South Sudan Refugee Response

TEAR’s partner, World Renew Uganda, has been working in the Bidibidi refugee settlement in the Yumbe district of Uganda since September 2016. As more people arrive at the settlement, the demand on the water and sanitation infrastructure continues to increase.

How you can help.

TEAR Australia is urgently raising money toward a revised goal of $100,000 to expand the provision of water and sanitation in the Bidibidi settlement.

Donations made to the South Sudan Refugee Response project will directly support these efforts. All donations of $2 or more are tax deductible.

Should the amount raised exceed what is required, TEAR will redirect gifts to similar humanitarian and development work. View the fundraising and donations FAQ.
