uganda/bidi bidi refugee camp missions team

Bidi Bidi.jpeg

Partnering with one of our local partners here in Memphis, Refugee Empowerment Program, this trip is a chance to minister to, serve alongside and empower South Sudanese refugees as they go back to the largest refugee camp in Africa. Due to political turmoil and civil war in the countries bordering Uganda, people are fleeing their home countries and have ended up in the Bidi Bidi Refugee Camp. The Bidi Bidi Refugee Camp is located in Northern Uganda and is currently one of the fastest-growing refugee camps.

  • There are more than two million South Sudanese refugees in Northern Uganda, and 85 percent of those refugees are women and children.

  • There are more than four refugee camps resettling these refugees in Northern Uganda.
