Patrick lives in Kampala on the northern coast of Lake Victoria.  Patrick is from South Sudan and is an orphan, he lives with the remainder of his family and friends.

Patrick is a young man who likes to help others, he will soon be heading off to “Bidibidi camp in northern Uganda is one of the fastest growing refugee camps in the world. 

More than 400,000 persons have left South Sudan for Uganda since the beginning of the year 2016 (in November the average was reported to be 2000/day). The refugees are fleeing a terrible humanitarian situation at home, victims of killings, rape and sexual abuse, forced recruitment, looting and burning of villages, hunger and lack of access to medication, and more. 86% of them are women or children.

A few months only after its opening, the camp of Bidibidi (in Yumbe district) in Norther Uganda already hosts more than 250,000 refugees. The growth of the camp is easily visible on satellite imagery (cf. below).”

Information taken from https://cartong.org/news/mapping-bidibidi-camp-uganda-msf

The Map shows a Star where Uganda’s Capital is and the Orange Circle is where the Refugee Camp is.  Patrick will be traveling to the camp soon to volunteer.

The aerial photo shows the growth of the Camp.

When Patric returns from the Refugee Camp he will be working with Street Children in the Capital.

To help Patrick with his work we will be looking to support him with toiletries, blankets and other such everyday essentials so he can support more young people on the streets and in Bidibidi.
