Palabek, 16 February, 2021 / 3:08 pm (ACI Africa).
Members of the Salesians of Don Bosco (SDB) have facilitated the provision of food aid and other humanitarian necessities to hundreds of refugees living with disabilities at the Don Bosco Palabek Refugee Resettlement Camp within Uganda’s Archdiocese of Gulu.
SDB members at Palabek have been able to provide food, cookware and 300 blankets to persons living with disabilities at the Refugee Centre thanks to the support from Salesian Missions, the U.S development arm of the SDB.
“We have been able to provide food and other necessities for people in need, particularly those with disabilities,” Fr. Ubaldino Andrade, a Salesian Missionary serving at the Refugee Camp, has been quoted as saying.
In the Monday, February 15 news report published by Mission Newswire, Fr. Ubaldino says the humanitarian aid is “greatly appreciated because there is hunger and malnutrition and other nutritional deficiencies among the refugees.”
“This creates much frustration, anger and other social disturbances,” the Salesian Cleric adds in reference to hunger and nutritional deficiencies at the Ugandan refugee camp.
