HEKS/EPER is making a difference in the «Assisted living» in Uganda

HEKS/EPER in Uganda

Facts

300000 people fleeing the civil war in South Sudan found protection in the Bidibidi refugee camp.

In 2017 HEKS/EPER supplied some 28000 people with emergency aid.

Having one's own living space is a decisive prerequisite for protection and a sense of security. It is also the basis for a socially integrated life. But running one's own household is not a matter of course for everyone. Many people's existence is derailed by a severe life crisis, an addiction problem, mental illness or even a prison sentence. These people have very slim chances on the open housing market and risk isolation or even total abandonment. The "HEKS/EPER Housing" project strives to prevent homelessness and neglect in the Cantons of Aargau, Basel Stadt and Baselland. Socially disadvantaged people receive housing support as well as individual counselling.
