Reforesting South Sudanese refugee camps:
WILDFF APPROACH: Palorinya is the second largest refugee camp in Uganda, home to more than 180,000 South Sudanese refugees. In partnership with Moyo district forest office, a tree nursery was built in the settlement and 120,000 seedlings were planted, including moringa, jackfruit and fast-growing timber species. Once the trees are ready for harvest, about 100,000 refugees will have access to sustainable food sources and firewood. An area of 267 acres has been reforested through our efforts.
