South Sudan RC

I led a one-day workshop for South Sudanese RCers who have been displaced by war and are living in refugee camps in Uganda. My assistants were Victor Batali and Mary Ade, from South Sudan. There were ten participants, mainly from Bidi-Bidi, Eden, Ariwa, Rhino, and Ocea Refugee Camps.

Re-evaluation Counseling had previously been introduced in the former Southern Sudan. Two workshops had been held—in 2005 in Yei River State and in 2012 in Juba Capital City—led by Wanjiku Kironyo (the Regional Reference Person for Northern Africa and East Africa), assisted by me.

This RC meeting in Kampala-Uganda was the first to be held since the war had broken out in South Sudan and displaced most South Sudanese RCers. They had been forced to seek refuge in different parts of Uganda. Some of the South Sudanese in the refugee camps have been in the war for over forty years and are still experiencing the pain and conflict.

The workshop created a safe space for people to discharge. They were delighted at the opportunity to heal. They expressed their commitment to become good RC teachers in the camps.

Our gratitude to Tim Jackins, Diane Shisk, and Wanjiku Kironyo for their continued love and support.
