PROGRAMS: EMERGENCY RESPONSE
CARE International is a global leader on gender in emergencies and more particularly in addressing protection and Gender Based Violence (GBV) in the humanitarian context. Since December 2013, CARE International in Uganda has developed a humanitarian response targeting South Sudanese refugees in Rhino Camp (Arua district) with interventions around Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH), GBV and shelter, and with a specific focus on Persons with Special Needs (separated children, unaccompanied minors, expectant and lactating mothers, single-mothers, woman-headed households, the disabled, the elderly, and the chronically sick). A particular challenge for South Sudanese new-arrivals is the access to safe drinking water, hygiene and sanitation facilities, health services and shelter.

Supporting Access to Family Planning & Post-Abortion Emergency care (SAF-PAC)
In coordination and collaboration with the Ugandan Ministry of Health, local communities and other humanitarian actors, the Supporting Access to Family Planning and Post-Abortion Care in Emergencies (SAF-PAC) initiative aims to reduce both unintended pregnancies and deaths from unsafe abortions during emergencies. SAF-PAC funding will allow CARE to integrate these essential services into it response to acute and protracted emergencies. The one year project began on January 1, 2017 in Rhino Camp and Imvepi Settlements, and is expected to reach a total of nearly 34.000 direct beneficiaries.
The Global Affairs-Canada Funded Humanitarian project (GAC)
This new initiative, funded by Global Affairs-Canada, is an integrated emergency response intervention in the sectors of Shelter, Protection (focusing on Gender Based Violence) and Health (specifically Sexual Reproductive, Maternal and Child Health (SRMCH)), with the ultimate aim to save lives, reduce suffering, and maintain human dignity of refugees and the host communities in Omugo, the Rhino Camp settlement extension. This Zone opened in August, 2017 and it is anticipated that approximately 43,000 refugees will be settled there over the next few months who will need urgent support. Therefore, the project aims to reach a total of 26,400 beneficiaries of which 15,840 (60%) will be women and 10,560 (40%) will be men. Persons with Special Needs (PSNs) will be a core target for support under this intervention, as well as a focus on women and girls, including Pregnant and Lactating Women (PLW).
