Uganda borders several countries that have had major conflicts in the past few decades. Due to conflict in the neighboring countries, Uganda has been inundated with refugees from Democratic Republic of Congo, Rwanda, and South Sudan. Miryante Orphans Home is located outside Kyaka II, a camp run in Western Uganda. Since refugees are not permitted to live outside of the camp, Miryante is working to provide basic services for children living inside the camp who have lost their parents due to conflict. Many of these children now live in child-headed households. Miryante is working to provide food and school fees for these children.
