As part of a four-day tour in support of several charities, MAF flights enabled HRH The Princess Royal to access two refugee camps in the country.
She visited Nakivale – the oldest refugee camp in Africa – near the Tanzania border, and Kyangwali Refugee Camp in the west of the country.
According to the UN, Nakivale is home to around 122,000 refugees, mostly from the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), which has been blighted by conflict for many years.
Kyangwali Refugee Camp is also home to thousands of refugees from neighbouring DRC. Uganda currently hosts around 5 million refugees – the largest refugee population in Africa.
