Bidibidi Refugee Settlement, Northern Uganda

Instagram photos and videos

Un día os hablaremos de Isaac.. Sursudanés refugiado en Bidibidi.. Músico y promotor d la paz. Este junio en una de las ocasiones en que llevaban casi 3 días sin agua, su hermana se levantó a las 6 de la mañana a buscar el acceso más cercano. Eran las 3 de la tarde cuando volvía con una garrafa de 15l para toda la familia. Su sobrino Baraka pudo disfrutar de un pequeño baño en una palangana. Baraka significa Bendición.

Mary Tabu (49) living in Bidibidi with her two children.
”In 1980 when I was in primary four I made my first Milaya. Whenever my aunt was making a sheet I was sitting next to her and trying out to make my own patterns on cheap fabrics. I can’t even count how many Milaya I’ve made but so far I’ve only one that I was really proud of. It was with a crocodile. When I came to the Bidibidi collection center a thief took my bag so I haven’t seen it since then.”
.
”The bedsheets mean a lot to me since it’s been such a big part of my life and I’ve been selling many throughout the years. Here I can’t afford the material so I haven’t sold any since I left South Sudan.” .
In August, the one millionth refugee from South Sudan entered Uganda to escape the war.
.
With most of the refugees being women and children who leave in the night during shootings, their bedsheets called Milaya are often one of the few things they carry. The handmade patterns have been made in South Sudan and Sudan for generations, and the tradition of the Milayas continues in what has become their temporary home while waiting for the war to end.
.
Bidibidi, with more than 270 000 people, is considered one of the world's largest refugee settlements.

Bidibidin pakolaissetlementissä elää n. 250 000 Etelä-Sudanin pakolaista, heistä yli puolet lapsia ja nuoria. Resurssit koulutuksen järjestämiseen ovat riittämättömät, puuttuu koulurakennuksia, opettajia, oppimateriaaleja, kouluruokaa, opettajilta asuntoja, latriineja.. Luokkakoot ovat usein yli 200 oppilasta. Siitä huolimatta kouluvierailulta palatessa hymyilyttää hienon kollegan kanssa. Opettajat olivat motivoituneita, oppilaat selvästi viihtyivät turvallisessa koulussa ja vanhemmat olivat antaneet koululle heidän vaikeassa elämäntilanteessakin kannattelevan nimen: Hope. #fillinggaps #fca #twb #teacherswithoutborders #opetilmanrajoja #unhcr #bidibidi #education #koulutus #hope

En Bidibidi el acceso al agua por persona y día es de 15l, el volumen de una de estas garrafas amarillas. En época seca unos 6l con suerte. En Europa el consumo mínimo está en 150l por persona y día (10l una cisterna de baño, casi 200l en 10minutos d ducha según la OMS...) Y sin agua?.. Construir casas, regar los cultivos, cocinar, higiene, beber.. El agua es vida! ¿Nos ayudas? Colaboraciones en👉https://nzuri-daima.org/donar/

”I got sick the day the soldiers arrested my husband and slaughtered him in front of me”, Lucia Goro (37) told me the first time I met her. She was holding her hand on her stomach and continued breathing slowly when saying that she finally had to talk about it. ”Whenever I think of him the pain starts from my heart. Last night I didn’t sleep, like so many nights before. I got help by the ARC hospital, they gave me some medicine and told me to buy more, but I couldn’t afford it.”
.
“We had to get here since they deployed soldiers back home in Lainya. They took my husband and claimed he was a rebel. Then they slaughtered him without any evidence. He did never even sympathize with the rebels, he was a businessman providing for me and our family. Now I see his dead body in front of me every time I wake up. His name was Joseph Lokudu.”
.
In Bidibidi, Lucia is taking care of eight children, including her nieces and nephews.
Women in other parts of Bidibidi started therapy groups to speak about the horrible memories from South Sudan but Lucia never found a group to talk to.

So sad news. Hadia, one of the amazing women I met in Bidibidi, died of Malaria this week. She’s leaving behind her three children, one of them is her one and a half year old son Jimmy who always cheered us up when at their plot.
I still remember the first time I was sitting and talking to her. We’re both born in ’92 but our lives have been so incredibly different. Here is what she told me about her life:
.
“I grew up in Khartoum and had never heard or seen of any fights. My life was good, I was staying with my brothers and my husband was working. That changed after we moved to Juba. In July 2016 war broke out and I heard gunshots from morning to night. I was so scared all the time, I could barely move.
I saw dead people everywhere and there was no food. After a bomb landed on our neighbors house in Juba the government soldiers moved us to Luri, 75 miles out of Juba. Three days later they brought us back and I found several of my neighbors lying on the streets, they had been shot and killed. We found so many dead bodies.”
.
”The days after that there was not enough food. I didn’t know how we should survive so we decided to move to Yei. I thought Yei would be safe but there we got the same problems and a month later we had to leave to Uganda. We were walking and it took us three days to reach the border.”
.
”Many of my relatives were in settlements in Uganda and told us we shouldn’t come. But I saw people getting slaughtered in front of us so we had to leave. We knew that there was no food on any of the sides and that some of the local communities didn’t want us to be here. But what should we do? Our children have to continue going to school so that they can go back to our country and change the situation when it’s getting more peaceful again.”
.
“My life in Uganda won’t change. When I was ill they only gave me painkillers for Malaria at the health center. When I went to a private clinic I got injections but that was expensive.“
.
“When South Sudan became independent we were very hopeful so it’s painful to see what happened. I hope that we can go back home and live in peace.”

Víctor Mandela, va a la escuela, tiene las inquietudes de un niño de 10 años. Aprende de su alrededor, de lo que ve y siente con su mente de niño. Víctor Mandela con sus ganas de ver mundo imaginó ser fotógrafo y contar a través de su cámara de fotos lo que veía. Podría ser la historia de muchos niños que quieren ser periodistas, fotógrafos... sólo que en este caso, Víctor Mandela vive en uno de los campos de refugiados más grandes del mundo, en Uganda y su cámara de fotos está hecha de papel, que él mismo se hizo.
¿Te animas a hacer la tuya y contarnos el mundo a través de tu mirada?👀

Mary. Crippled by elephantiasis, lymphatic filariasis, she was forced to escape South Sudan with her five children hobbling and on her knees for a week to get to the Uganda border. Like most refugees, members of her family were killed and lost everything. I interviewed her for #worldrenew at #bidibidi refugee settlement. #refugee #portrait
