Bidi Bidi Refugee Camp is the 2nd largest in the World
Did you know that Uganda has one of the most generous and progressive approaches to hosting refugees in the region if not the world?


Uganda hosts nearly half of the 2 million refugees who have fled South Sudan since civil war broke out in 2013. After years of instability and economic downturn, South Sudan is now in its 4th year of civil war between the current government and its opposition. This has resulted in millions fleeing or becoming internally displaced to save their lives.

The Story of Bidi Bidi


Civil war drove an estimated 20,000 young boys from south Sudan


Most just six or seven years old, they fled to Ethiopia to escape death


Wandering in and out of war zones, these "Lost Boys" spent the next four years in dire conditions. Thousands of boys lost their lives to hunger, dehydration, and exhaustion. Some were attacked and killed by wild animals; others drowned crossing rivers and many were caught in the crossfire of fighting forces.


They walked more than a thousand miles, half of them dying before reaching Kakuma refugee camp in Kenya


They were known as the Lost Boys of Sudan.

We are putting every resource that we have at our disposal to making StepUp.One delivers the results. For us, this is the last mile. We can give them food, shelter, education, and health but with StepUp.One, we can give them Hope.

    Also Had the pleasure of chatting with @KLeligdonova on her recent trip to #Dadaab, glad to hear registration of #refugees is ongoing after a long hiatus. This is a step towards access to basic needs & services @SKEmbKenya

    Fatuma of NYATO farsamo sold over Ksh 750k of her products during our women's business forum at #Dadaab supported by @IloProspects

    In collaboration with @GarissaChamber we’ll have more business fair in the county and national level

    We journeyed with @gilesduley's incredible work as a photographer, documenting the stories of new arrivals in #Dadaab

    From visiting Dadaab to cooking in a Somali hotel in the camp, his commitment to humanizing the #refugees experience is truly inspiring @unhcrkenya 📸@BabaHotani

    Door een catastrofale droogte in de Hoorn van Afrika zijn miljoenen mensen op de vlucht geslagen.

    Dit is wat je moet weten over vluchtelingenkamp #Dadaab in Kenia.

    I’m saddened to learn the death of Mama Khadija, a veteran teacher from Kenya’s #Dadaab refugee camp.

    For nearly 30 years, she championed girls education & raised the great minds of Dadaab who are now making a difference in #Somalia & the diaspora.

    We’ll miss U😍Rest in Jannah.
