South Sudan refugees in Northern Uganda face food shortage

first_imgThe famine declared in South Sudan by the United Nations is pushing many to flee to neighboring countries.In  Uganda, where many have sought refuge, there are food shortages arising from the long dry spellFamilies’ wait in line as relief agencies prepare to distribute food.One at a time the refugees take away a month’s portion. But many here say the food is not enough…“Since January we have just received twice… so you cannot survive on twelve kilos for four months…” Said Roman Modi- South Sudan refugee“When there is no food we take water and we stay….” Said Atim Aisha- South Sudan refugeeWar and famine that has already been declared in parts of South Sudan is driving many to flee.According to the United Nations figures, over 100,000 people face starvation.“This is bidi bidi, now the largest refugee settlement in the world. It is home to over 270,000 South Sudanese and every month each refugee is entitled to 12kg of maize and beans… but many are still going hungry because food is being rationed to cater for the influx…”Relief agencies need 9 metric tons of food every month… but they can only provide 6“Missing a cycle means if they are supposed to get food on the 15th of the month and you are giving on the 20th… it means the five days they have missed food is a challenge for the refugees especially the children… how do they survive” Said Gilbert Kamanga- World Vision Country Director, UgandaThe World Food Program says it needs more than 60 million dollars to meet the current food needs, but the funding is not coming in as expected.But in Uganda where there has been an influx of refugees, food production has been affected by the long dry spell.“We have had a difficult of rain… it means that the host communities who sometimes provide sustenance for these refugees… there is no much sustenance as well.” Said Gilbert Kamanga- World Vision Country Director, UgandaHowever Relief Agencies are optimistic that if funding comes through, there will be enough food, provided the number of refugees does not increase.last_img read more

Leicester City transfer hyped up in Portugal as 56.4% of fans…

first_imgIf Adrien Silva wanted to create a big rumour when saying he’d like to return to his former club Sporting, he’s done it pretty well. Following the coverage of his quotes, Lisbon newspaper Record now comes up with a big article saying what the Lions have to do to sign the Leicester City player in the summer.They say the main concern is about the number of midfielders Sporting have in the squad. It’s claimed the club currently own 10 players for the position, and would need to get rid of a few of them before signing another one.And it doesn’t really look like Record are even considering the possibility of the Lisbon side signing Adrien Silva on a permanent deal.They say that for the operation to be possible, the player only needs to accept a big pay cut, as the Lions can’t afford the €4.6m gross he makes at Leicester City.Embed from Getty ImagesTo hype up the possible transfer, Record consulted three pundits to comment on it. They’ve also made a poll on their website asking Sporting fans if the club should spend on bringing Adrien Silva back. There were 56.4% saying yes to the signing, while 43.6% were going against it.Considering that Adrien used to be Sporting’s captain, this approval rate is quite lower than we expected.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameIf You Like to Play, this City-Building Game is a Must-Have.
