Uduk Hope Inc. recognizes that refugees in South Sudan face very unique challenges. We believe that the best solutions to these challenges are those proposed by the community members themselves. The primary focus of our faith-based initiatives is to support the functions of the Uduk church network in Doro Refugee Camp as requested by the Uduk community. The Uduk church network is composed of 19 Christian churches in different parts of the refugee camp. Uduk Hope’s exploratory team met with the leaders of the Uduk churches many times in the summer of 2016. In these meetings the leaders requested financial support for special events such as the Christmas celebration, so that the churches can host and feed many members of the community. Each of the Ethiopia camps have one church that we support and our hope again is that funding for these programs will come from the stores that we support financially.
