CRESS UK (Christian Relief and Education for the South Sudanese) was formed in 2011 and is a small but growing charity focused on improving life for the South Sudanese living in Northern Uganda, displaced by ongoing civil war.  

Our aim is to encourage self-sufficiency and growth by providing training, education and health support enabling some of these amazing people to form self-sufficient, sustainable and ethical communities that do not require Western aid.

In the medium to long term, when the refugees can return to their homes in South Sudan, they should be able to take these skills with them and rebuild their communities.

CRESS key impacts include:

  • In September 2017, the Mijale clinic was opened (funded by CRESS), with 4000 patients seen this year. The clinic employs a nurse, midwife, lab assistant and dispensing assistant. Solar power to the clinic means medicines can be kept cool and investigative testing carried out on site.
  • 2500 people were supported through agricultural groups in 8 refugee camps
  • 463 dental patients received treatment
  •  409 vulnerable school girls were given RUMPs (Re-usable menstrual pads) and hygiene education training
  • CRESS sponsors 78 children in full-time education. All of our Sponsors have a named child, and the children know who their sponsor is and keep in touch by writing to them once a year. Sponsors are provided with an annual progress report.
