Uganda Humanitarian Interviews

Mariam Namwebya – Public Health Engineering Assistant in Rhino Camp Refugee Settlement  

People in the refugee settlements come from diverse cultures, but the more you interact and hear from the refugees, the more you learn that every single act you make changes someone’s life for good. This pushes me to know that everyone needs a chance to live a decent life. 

John Jal Dak – Head of Youth Social Advocacy Team (YSAT)  

John Dal was part of the refugees that fled the South Sudan war in 2014.  He started Humanitarian work in 2014, as a community site supervisor with Oxfam. He has done the humanitarian work in four refugee settlements of Rhino Camp, Imvepi, Bidibidi, Lobule and Kiryandongo

As a refugee, I am driven by compassion, empathy, and a sense of social responsibility to help those displaced from their homes due to conflict, persecution, or natural disasters. The immense challenges and suffering displaced individuals and refugees, including myself, face and feel compelled me to take action.
