A group of refugees from both DR Congo and South Sudan, living in Uganda’s Koboko town cleaned the district’s main hospital as well as its surroundings. They are urban refugees who live on their own, without entirely depending on humanitarian aid. They say this is just the beginning – and more of such activities will continue. Their leaders argue such gestures will help to cement their relationship with the host community.

Bakole Savior is in Koboko, district located near both DR Congo and South Sudan borders, and sent us this report.
