Akim Faha holds her 2 year old daughter Tuna Osman in the Intensive Therapeutic Feeding Center at MSF's hospital in Batil refugee camp. In addition to being severely acutely malnourished Tuna is also suffering from a cough, diarrhea, and dehydration.  Batil is one of three Upper Nile camps sheltering at least 113,000 refugees who have crossed the border from Blue Nile state to escape fighting. Refugees arrive at the camp with harrowing stories of being bombed out of their homes, or having their villages burned. The camps into which they have poured are on a vast floodplain, leaving many tents flooded and refugees vulnerable to disease. Mortality rates in Batil camp are at emergency levels, malnutrition rates are more than five times above emergency thresholds, and diarrhea and malarial cases are rising.

All Saints Cathedral Kampala youth ministry is running an outreach project, Touch A Heart (TAH), from the current date till the 30th of June 2017.
This is an outreach project intended to provide support relief to the families of the South Sudanese Refugees in Uganda.
They have been forced to flee from their country because of the civil war. Due to their large numbers estimated to be +900,000 by the end of this year by the UNHCR, there is a strain on the relief being provided to them.
We believe that as a church there is so much we can do for these people most of whom are women and children

We therefore call for your support and coordination as we drive this campaign to help our less fortunate brothers and sisters.
As the youth ministry, we decided that there is a lot we can contribute ranging from clothing (especially women and children’s clothing), shoes, bed sheets, blankets, jackets, pads, mosquito nets, scholastic materials and kitchen utensils.

We ask for your cooperation as we fundraise and gather these items.
We can collect items from our friends and family that are willing to give and even from ourselves.

This project has the potential to minister God’s love even during such dire circumstances and with your support, we are confident that we can achieve this.

Interesting activities are being planned for this cause!
For more details about this project please contact Tabitha on 0752113299 or Shivan on 0752955872

Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken nor my covenant of peace be removed,” says the Lord, who has compassion on you.” ‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭54:10‬ ‭NIV
