Morungatuny camp, established in 1979, is one of the largest camps in Obalanga Sub County in North Eastern Uganda. Close to 20,000 people are living there in inhuman conditions. They have experienced famine, war, floods and some have had their children abducted by the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) during the rebel incursion into Amuria district in 2003. Their health has been compromised and preventable infectious diseases such as respiratory infections, gastro-intestinal infections, malnutrition, malaria and HIV/AIDS have accounted for chronic sicknesses, disabilities and deaths.
