The United Nations announced a significant boost for vulnerable communities in Uganda with a $4.3 million humanitarian aid package. Resident Coordinator, Ms. Susan Ngongi Namondo, revealed the contribution at a press conference, praising long-standing support from the Government of Japan.

Ms Namondo highlighted Japan's dedication to inclusive development, particularly for those facing food insecurity in Karamoja. "Japan's commitment to leaving no one behind is admirable," she stated.

This aid, funded by Japan's Supplementary Budget, will provide life-saving assistance to 1.5 million refugees and their host communities across northern and southwestern Uganda over the next year. UN agencies like UNHCR, UNFPA, and WFP will spearhead the distribution.

"The United Nations remains committed to Uganda and Africa's development," Ms. Namondo emphasized, solidifying the UN's partnership with Japan.

This announcement reinforces Japan's commitment to Uganda's human capital and sustainable development goals. Ms. Namondo concluded by expressing the UN's dedication to collaboration and forging new partnerships to accelerate progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
