Additionally, HIAS implemented a child protection program in Kampala and in rural refugee settlements in partnership with UNHCR to assist unaccompanied refugee minors and youth in accessing a durable solution. In order to further improve the situation of refugees in Uganda, HIAS educated municipal and local community leaders and law enforcement on the special needs and rights of urban refugees.
HIAS improved the well-being of refugees by supporting communal healing activities and community-based psychosocial programming. Support for survivors included mechanisms for communal healing that view suffering as a collective experience and encourage the recovery and reintegration of survivors into the community. HIAS also worked to identify needs for specialized psychosocial services, and provides children with group or individual counselling as necessary.
HIAS worked with vulnerable refugees who have particular protection risks, helping them access safety either through their local community networks, Ugandan institutions or other durable solutions. HIAS provided these refugees with counseling relating to their protection concerns and works closely with them to provide case management services.
