WORST CITY - Kampala, Uganda

Kampala, Uganda

Population: 2.1 million

Worst Feature: Tortures

Best Feature: One of them must be Emin Pasha Hotel – peace in a noisy city – but book early or you might end up living on the street.

 

Uganda is a country of mixed fortunes – you can read how tourists are flocking to a modern bustling city, and it even looks like that in some photos. – but look down the page and you will see a warning – Dangerous Areas – there follows a list of warning about what not to do and where not to go.
Of course some people, quite a lot of them, actually live in these ‘dangerous areas’. This for many children is where they grow up. They know nothing else. The city is proud of its university and the medical school, but look in the hospital next door and you will see something else – malnutrition. In one recent report they found 315 children in the hospital – all admitted for some other reason such as pneumonia or diarrhoea, and all suffering from malnutrition. These are probably the tip of the iceberg – there are a lot more children in this city of well over a million people. AIDS is a problem of course , but many of these children were not sufferers from that - they just weren’t getting enough food.

Help children in Uganda with SOS Children

Although Uganda has now enjoyed more than a decade of relative peace and stability after twenty years of civil war, it remains one of the poorest countries in the world and the people continue to suffer from its position at the centre of an area of violence and ethnic unrest. Health care is poor and malnutrition, malaria and parasites are common. There is a large incidence of HIV/AIDS as well as related illnesses like TB and pneumonia. Less than half the people have access to clean drinking water and life expectancy is low.

The charity began work on the first Ugandan community in 1989 at Kakiri, a small market town in the Lowero triangle, 27 km north west of the capital Kampala. The area was chosen because this part of Uganda suffered most from the war in 1986 which virtually destroyed the town's infrastructure. SOS Children's Kakiri community has twelve family houses and three youth houses where the older children can live in relative autonomy while they take their first guided steps towards independent lives. The community will be their home until they are ready and able to support themselves. As well as the houses, there is a nursery, a school for both primary and secondary pupils and a medical centre, all of which are used by families in the neighbourhood.

SOS Children's second site opened in 2003 in Entebbe, the country's second largest city. It has twelve family houses and a nursery and is home to over 120 children.
