Clan Conflict Erupts in Uganda

Uganda Conflict Report: February 26, 2015

According to Food for the Hungry (FH) Uganda reports, clan violence broke out in Kitgum, Uganda at the end of January. 

The Chua and Okol clans became engaged in a land conflict in June 2014 which came to a head early this year. After an Okol man was killed in the clash, the Okol clan retaliated against the Chua by burning 103 houses, destroying tens of thousands of kilos of food, stealing livestock, injuring 28 people, and killing one man - the father of an FH US sponsored child. Sadly, a different child ran into the bush in during the conflict and, to date, has not been found. 

FH Uganda has organized relief and rehabilitation efforts for the 755 affected people. These families are currently without houses or food resources. Although this tragedy did not happen in a FH Canada community, we stand in solidarity with FH Uganda. FH Canada has given $10,000 USD toward relief in Kitgum.

Please continue to pray for reconciliation in Kitgum, Uganda, and peace in all FH communities.
